A video posted on social media by Banksy stated that the device was secretly built into the painting “a few years ago … in case it was ever put up for auction”, while his agent said last week that the artist was unlikely to have cooperated with Sotheby’s, since he would not collude with an institution.

“When the hammer came down last week and the work was shredded, I was at first shocked, but gradually I began to realize that I would end up with my own piece of art history,” the buyer, who was identified only as a “European collector and a longstanding client,” commented in the statement.
