班克西抄了一幅小米1857画《拾荒者》,把它改名为“代理工作”,裁剪了三个在田里劳动的农妇,把她放在框架上抽着一支香烟。Millet深受1848次革命及其民主承诺的影响。他成了第一个描绘农民的画家,一个注定要被资本主义推进的阶级,以这样一种同情和高贵的方式贫穷。他的冷静的形象,宣称“是的,世界可以变成一个更好的地方”,被资产阶级社会所批判,并被新兴社会主义运动占据。班克西在他的展览上发短信说:“很高兴看到它如此受欢迎,但这让我有点不高兴。嗯。纵观历史,所有伟大的艺术家在他们的一生中都被忽视了,只有当他们离开后才会欣赏。我开始担心我不是好人,“问自己和工作的问题是对的。对于Banksy和任何艺术家都应该向往的“严肃的事情发生”,那么就需要一种严肃(而非毫无幽默感)的艺术态度。班克斯的作品是否朝着那个方向发展,或者他只是被选为艺术界的另一个坏孩子,还有待决定。

Banksy took a copy of Millet’s 1857 painting “The Gleaners,” renamed it “Agency Job,” cutting out one of the three peasant women labouring in the fields and placing her on the frame smoking a cigarette. Millet had been deeply affected by the 1848 revolutions and their promise of democracy. He became the first European painter to portray the peasantry, a doomed class impoverished by advancing capitalism, in such a sympathetic and noble manner. His calm imagery, which declares, “Yes, the world can be changed into a better place,” was castigated by bourgeois society and taken up by the emerging socialist movement.Banksy texted the media regarding his exhibition, “It’s nice to see it’s been so popular but it makes me a bit suspicious. Throughout history all the great artists have been overlooked in their own lifetime and only appreciated once they’ve gone. I’m starting to worry I’m not one of the good guys.”It is right and proper to ask such questions of oneself and one’s work. For something “serious to happen,” which Banksy and any artist should aspire to, then a serious (not humourless) approach to art is required. Whether Banksy’s work progresses in that direction or whether he is merely co-opted to become another bad boy for the art establishment is yet to be decided.
