Lot Essay

When Radiohead released their 6th studio album, Hail to The Thief in June 2003, the artwork featured on the album's cover (originally executed by Stanley Donwood) was recreated on a large panel (9.70m x 11m, oil and acrylics on canvas, by artist Katerina Vagia) and suspended at the EMI offices in Athens, Greece for promotional purposes. Once taken down, the canvas was cut into 25 smaller panels, each being signed by members of the group before it was sold in aid of the charity 'Medecins Sans Frontieres.'
In this part of the painting Vagia has used the word Hail, to replace the word Anti as seen in Donwood's original artwork.
