The $12 Million Paint Job

November 1, 2019

 

Right on cue for the original Brexit deadline of Halloween, Banksy entered the roiling British political debate with his customary puckish energy at a Sotheby's sale earlier this month, this time attaining a personal best auction record of $12 million for a painting he recently altered and has retitled, with an ironic nod to Darwin, as Devolved Parliament. No, the 14-foot-long oil didn't somehow shred itself remotely, via radio signal, as the much more modestly-sized Girl With A Balloon infamously did in the moment of its sale at Sotheby's in 2018.

As we know, Devolved Parliament is a huge, and for Banksy, classical oil-on-canvas portrait of the House of Commons members... as chimpanzees. Despite the Sotheby's catalogue copy touting the pictured scene as "madness," it's anything but that. These are not your rowdy simians of Jane Goodall's day, chattering at and grooming one another while scarfing bananas by the bunch. Rather, it is the lack of wild movement over the great expanse of canvas that makes the painting's impact. Banksy has the chimp House of Commons doing a remarkable job of staying in fairly neat rows in the green-leather-upholstered benches of the chamber, as the presumed chimp-Prime Minister stands at the table, document in hand, awaiting the next question.  As non-simian British PMs and MPs actually do.
