Breaking News ! Banksy's largest artwork has been removed from its Liverpool home and is on its way to the Netherlands for auctioning. The White House Rat, which Banksy painted on the side of the White House pub in Merseyside in 2004, is currently being transported to the Netherlands by lorry, the Liverpool Echo reports. It will be delivered to the Hessink's auction house next week and will be sold in May. In 2011, the Liverpool-based Ascot Property Group acquired the Grade II listed building and removed the mural in 48 pieces, supposedly in an effort to preserve it. Three years later it failed to sell at a London auction, before being sold elsewhere for £114,000. In 2017, the rat was among five Banksy pieces sold to an anonymous Qatari buyer for £3.85 million.

. "We would love to see it end up back in the public domain in Liverpool where Banksy made it," he said. “Many of Banksy’s early works have already been lost and Liverpool, it is said, has not one single work left for the public to enjoy. Had the city acted earlier and taken the works to one of Liverpool’s museums it would have been protected for generations to come and people to enjoy." Hessink's said it has enlisted a crane firm to move the artwork into the auction house: "Due to its enormous size, it will not be possible to bring this Banksy through the front door." White House Rat will be up for auction next month.
