The acrylic on canvas, which the pair collaborated on in 2005 for the Trade Justice Movement (a facet of the Make Poverty History campaign), is estimated to be worth 3,500-4,000 ($5,500-6,300).

Proceeds from the sale of the artwork, which features skeletons, a bleeding briefcase, a man with a dollar sign in his head and the words "BUSINESS SCHOOL FOR THE DEAD", are to benefit the Trade Justice Movement.

Yorke informed his followers over social networking site Twitter: "Hope someone in the financial industry buys this, what a novelty to have a painting at auction ha!"

Here at Paul Fraser Collectibles, we have this Peter Doherty blood-art work in stock.
