On Banksy’s third to last day of his residency, he took a painting from Housing Works, added a Nazi officer gazing at an idealized landscape in the Hudson River School style, and re-donated it back to the thrift store with his signature. Housing Works promptly got it ready for auction, where it took in $615,000.
