Ellen Britt for CNT#NFT
A few days ago, the granddaughter of Spanish artist Pablo Picasso, and her son Florian Picasso, announced they were going to sell 1,010 digital art pieces of one of the late artist’s ceramic works that has never before been seen publicly.
This announcement understandably generated a lot of excitement in the art world, as Picasso, who died in 1973, had an enormous influence on 20th-century art with his unique style.
A Family Squabble
But now, all that excitement has fizzled, as a lawyer for the Picasso family say his heirs have not authorized such an offering, apparently signaling an intra-family disagreement.
A lawyer for the Picasso Administration, Jean-Jacques Neuer, reportedly warned that any such NFT claiming to be a Picasso would be counterfeit.
Would Picasso Have Approved?
It’s interesting to speculate if the intra-family disagreement might not just be a disagreement between generations as well. One can’t help but think that Picasso himself, whose eclectic style was far ahead of his time, would be disappointed!
