NEW YORK -- A New York City art dealer is offering three works by the elusive British street artist Banksy at a Miami auction.
One work adorned the side of a Brooklyn building and another was originally on the side of an English pub.
Stephan Keszler says he purchased "Bandaged Heart" a week after Banksy completed it during his monthlong residency in New York City this fall. It's estimated to bring $400,000 to $600,000 at the Fine Art Auctions Miami on Tuesday night.
"Kissing Coppers," spray-painted in 2005 on the Prince Albert Pub in Brighton, England, is expected to sell for $500,000 to $700,000.
Another work at the auction, also made during Banksy's New York residency, is "Crazy Horse Car Door." Its pre-sale estimate is $200,000 to $300,000.
