Landlord ‘sells Lowestoft Banksy work for £2 million’

A former Lowestoft Banksy mural is believed to have been sold for up to £2 million in the UK after talks with the owner of an auction house in California fell through.


‘However, Darren Julien, director of Julien’s Auction House, described how talks ‘broke down’ with the sellers and, according to art dealer John Brandler, Julien’s low guide price of $200,000 to $400,000 deterred Mr and Mrs Schwartz from selling to the US market.

The piece has now been sold on privately to a buyer in the UK and according to Mr Brandler this could have sold for up to £2,000,000.’
