That painting, Simple Intelligence Testing, was kept together (unless there are multiple versions of it) and was sold in February '08 for 636k GBP which is his highest non-collaborative price at auction. I'd be more than stunned to learn that the buyer sold some of the individual canvases from that composition as it would crush its value not to mention that I doubt (pure speculation on my part) that PC would authenticate any one of the canvases individually though I could well be mistaken.

To be honest that image on its own has always looked to me as if it's missing the second half of the painting.
Was it ever done as a diptych?

Did your friend sell his piece at Dreweatts last autumn weeble? Another less detailed pic of it here
She certainly did! She didn't even know anything about Banksy until she saw the Dreweatts auction! She sold it though - for a tidy profit nevertheless!
What I loved about it, was the serious amount of brush work. Not just your average stencil on a washed background! Very good quality piece. Other than a Bomb Middle England, reckon it was the best Banksy I've ever seen.
