Of this image of London's Tate Modern, Polidori states: 'by looking at the extremes... [I was] able to edit and revise reality by visually transforming it. To the naked eye, the Tate has no vantage points that are as intersting as what I achieved in this image.' (Metropolis, p.121)
No VAT will be charged on the hammer price, but VAT at 15% will be added to the buyer's premium which is invoiced on a VAT inclusive basis.
