Picasso’s Never-Before-Seen Work Becoming NFTs
The next big name in the NFT game is Pablo Picasso. No, the legendary artist is not back from the dead, but his art is transcending to the next level. Picasso’s descendants announced their plan to auction off his never-before-seen ceramic work as NFTs earlier today.
Marina Picasso, Pablo’s granddaughter, broke the news to the Associated Press. The upcoming auction will include 1,010 collectibles featuring one of Picasso’s ceramic pieces from October 1958.
“We’re trying to build a bridge between the NFT world and the fine art world,” Marina’s son Florian Picasso stated.
Marina described her relationship with her grandfather as “troubled” in a 2015 interview with The Guardian, declaring that selling his artwork is a part of the healing process.
For those interested in adding to their fine art collection, Picasso’s NFT auction will take place on Sotheby’s in March.
