Forty images of Marilyn – mostly black-and-white studio portraits and movie stills from the early to mid- 1950s – are currently on offer as NFTs, Blockster reports. (The original prints come from the personal archive of Kim Goodwin, the celebrity makeup artist and Marilyn doll-maker who sadly passed away in 2019.)
“In the latest collaboration, OneOf, a leading NFT platform, in partnership with Globe Entertainment has released a collection of 40 vintage Marilyn Monroe prints. These prints, which capture the essence of one of Hollywood’s most iconic figures, not only offer a glimpse into the past but also leverage cutting-edge blockchain technology to provide a unique and immersive experience for art enthusiasts and collectors. With each print accompanied by a digital certificate of authenticity, this collection represents a significant step in bridging the gap between timeless pop-culture touch-points and the digital age.
One of the standout features of this Marilyn Monroe collection is the presence of original negatives attached to some of the vintage prints. These negatives offer a tangible connection to the past, providing a glimpse into the artistic process of the original photographer.
OneOf and Globe Entertainment have made a conscious effort to make this collection accessible to a wide range of art enthusiasts and collectors. Priced at $250 ETH per print, these NFTs offer an affordable entry point into the world of digital art and collectibles.”
