Di-Faced Tenner (10GBP Note)

By Banksy

Retail Price: POR

SKU: G30540

ART DESCRIPTION

Includes an original hand-signed letter of provenance from Steve Lazarides.

Banksy’s 2004, Editioned Multiple, Offset lithograph in color on paper, di-faced £10 note featuring a portrait of Princess Diana on the front and the motto: “I Promise to Pay the Bearer on Demand the Ultimate Price.” The back features Darwin’s image and the statement: “Trust No One.”

From the private collection of Steve Lazarides, Banksy’s original art agent. Steve represented Banksy in his early years and brought his art into the public spotlight. The Di-faced Tenner was created for a public stunt Banksy had orchestrated that involved dropping a suitcase full of the fake currency in public, during rush hour at the Liverpool tube station in London and at the Notting Hill Carnival and Reading Festival. Later that year, an unknown amount of Tenners were also released at the exhibition preview of Santa’s Ghetto, held at Lazarides Gallery.

In addition to its fascinating history as an unperformed public stunt, the Di-faced Tenner had the honor of being Banksy’s first piece of art to enter the British Museum’s private collection earlier this year.

Custom Framed Size  9 X 12 inches as pictured in additional images provided. All works will be sold framed in white with white 8 ply Crescent Acid-Free Matting with a window in the verso.

Each framed work will be sealed with Certified Tamperproof Hologram with Serial Number.
