43,668 22/07/2019 Signed 39321 Live Auctioneers Banksy (British, b. 1974) Rude Copper, 2002 Screenprint and spray paint on paper 23-1/4 x 16-1/2 inches (59.1 x 41.9 cm) A Certificate of Authenticity from Pest Control accompanies this lot. Among the earliest Banksy prints, Rude Copper shows a policeman in the classic English bobby's custodian helmet, his unexpected obscene gesture seeming to leap off the paper. The rust-orange spray-painted word "filth" could be graffiti in an out-of-control urban setting or could indicate the mindset of the officer himself. Banksy has long challenged the role of police and authority in Britain. This is likely due to police as the antithesis to the practice of street art. HID03101242017
