To start off the new year, RtistiQ will present the Digital NFT versions of Raja Ravi Varma’s (RRV) works The Coquette and Reclining Nair Lady, two of his most famous paintings. With the originals considered to be National Treasures and unable to be brought out of India, the NFT versions will be auctioned online on the RtistiQ platform from 17 February to 20 February 2022.
With the surge of demand for NFTs in recent times, this event marks several firsts for the industry, especially within the Asian art collector and NFT communities. Considered to be national treasures, this collection of works of Raja Ravi Varma will be the first-ever to be tokenised and launched, accepting payments via credit card and crypto. At the same time, this is also the first time an NFT auction has been held in partnership with a traditional gallery as well as with an Artist Foundation, gallery g and the Raja Ravi Varma Heritage Foundation.
When: 17 - 20 Feb 2022,
