British Museum launches first NFT project
The French business and NFT art platform, LaCollection, launched this autumn with an exclusive partnership with the British Museum. Dedicated to museums and institutional collections, LaCollection’s mission is to help cultural institutions engage with the next generation of art enthusiasts, and create new ways to discover museums, artists and individual artworks.
Working with the British Museum, the first project is dedicated to the great Japanese master, Katsushika Hokusai. Coinciding with the opening of Hokusai: The Great Picture Book of Everything, this major exhibition displays previously forgotten series of drawings by the artist for the first time.
Collectors can bid on up to 200 digital editions, from his signature images to rare pieces.
