The artwork Girl And Balloon by Banksy has gone on display at Christie’s showroom in London.

The piece is estimated to sell for between £2.5 million and £3.5 million and will be included in the 20th and 21st Century: Evening Sale including Thinking Italian.

The first of the two paired images depicts a small girl reaching towards the sky while the second shows a heart-shaped red balloon, an image often used by the anonymous artist, floating away on the wind.

Also featured in the sale will be post-war Italian art including Mappa, by conceptual artist Alighiero Boetti, and Still Life (Flowers) by David Hockney.
