The British Museum was one of the first in the world to get onboard the NFT train. In September 2021, they entered a collaboration with NFT platform, LaCollection, dropping over 200 NFT versions of Japanese artist, Katsushika Hokusai’s works.
The project was a success, and the museum has announced another collaboration; this time a collection based on paintings by English romantic artist William Turner.
They will be selling 20 NFTs of his artwork, available in three rarities: Ultra Rare, Super Rare, and Open Edition.
The first Ultra Rare and Open Edition will only be available to those who bought a Hokusai NFT, in a private sale between 8 – 9 February 2022. For the rest, the public sale will start on February 9 to March 5.
Meanwhile, The British Museum has started accepting payments in Ether for their NFTs. The store has been integrated with MetaMask and Fortmatic towards this endeavor.
