Klimt’s Kiss transformed into NFT

    Klimt’s Kiss transformed into NFT

    The Belvedere Museum in Vienna will create its first Non Fungible Token on the occasion of Lovers’ Day. 

    To mark Valentine’s Day, a digital copy of Gustav Klimt‘s famous Kiss is set to be transformed and sold for 10,000 NFT by the Belvedere Museum in Vienna.

    “What does it mean to own a work of art in the digital age? The rise of NFTs, which has preoccupied the art world since 2020, has given new impetus to this intriguing question. The conversion of real works into digital reproductions opens up new forms of participation, which, in financial terms, should be taken seriously, but can also be seen in a playful way,” says Stella Rollig, general director of the museum.

    The official release of the NFT will take place on 14 February, and the work will be divided into 10,000 units that will be distributed among the buyers. In addition, a love dedication can be added to the token and engraved inside the NFT, making it even more personal and special. 

    The Belvedere in Vienna is only the latest of the major museums which have decided to tokenise one or more masterpieces from their collection. The most recent transformation of masterpieces into NFTs was undertaken by the British Museum for a series of 50 works by Turner.
