The British Museum has announced its new partnership with the technology company Provenance to create a unique collection of blockchain-powered limited edition artworks. The NFT (non-fungible token) will be available exclusively on the Etherscan, and once it’s sold out there won’t be any more. What would you buy if you had £5 million?
The “jmw turner” is a British painter who was born in 1775. He is best known for his landscape paintings and the use of light. The museum will launch an exclusive collection of Turner’s works, as well as other artists’ work with similar themes to the artist.
The British Museum is teaming up with LaCollection, a French NFT platform, to release a collection of 20 NFTs based on the works of famed watercolorist J.M.W. Turner. The sale follows the successful debut of Katushika Hokusai NFTs by the partnerships, which drew an audience from over 120 nations.
The NFTs will be sold privately on LaCollection between February 8th and 9th, and on the open market between February 9th and March 4th. The 20 NFTs will be available in three rarity levels: 9 Ultra Rare (two editions), 7 Super Rare (ten editions), and 4 Open Edition (a maximum of 99 copies will be sold during a 24-48-hour period).
The sale of Ultra Rare and Open Edition NFTs will be offered solely to current community members who have bought an NFT from the Katsushika Hokusai release, whose private sale is open until January 31st. Anyone who bought a Turner NFT during the sales window will also be able to acquire a last Ultra Rare NFT of Turner’s artwork ‘A Storm’ (1823).
The 20 paintings in the collection are from a seldom seen collection left by Robert Wylie Lloyd, the previous director of Christie’s Auction House, who stated that the collection must only be displayed for two weeks in February or by special request, and that it should never be rented.
Because of his interest in colors in his landscapes and seascapes, JMW Turner (1775-1851) is known as “the painter of sunlight.” Because of the effect that his chaotic and emotive approach has had on many painters today, he is often considered as the first’modern’ artist.
