The NFT marketplace Oases, in collaboration with the Belvedere Gallery in Vienna, put up an NFT offer for the painting “The Kiss” by the Austrian artist Gustav Klimt. This was reported to ForkLog by representatives of the company.
In February 2022, the Belvedere Gallery and the artèQ investment fund launched The Kiss NFT project. As part of it, the museum divided a digital copy of the painting “The Kiss” into 10,000 unique fragments and put them up for sale as NFTs.
On the first day of the token sale, users bought 1,730 NFTs worth over €3.2 million. The remaining tokens can be purchased on the Oases platform for Ethereum (ETH).
“Klimt created a universal allegorical statement about love as the central theme of human existence. Austria purchased the painting for the Belvedere Gallery in 1908, and it has been in the museum ever since. Today, The Kiss is considered an icon of Viennese Art Nouveau and European Modernism. This is one of the most famous works of art in the world,” Oases representatives comment.
Oases is a platform for issuing and trading NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain. Well-known NFT collections like Bored Ape Yacht Club or CryptoPunks are available on the marketplace, as well as works by emerging artists selected by the platform team.
Earlier, Fox announced the premiere date of the NFT-series “Krapopolis” from the creator of “Rick and Morty” Dan Harmon.
