Quick Takes:

  • Salvador Mundi, the world’s priciest painting, will become an NFT.
  • ElmonX will present the NFT in collaboration with Bridgeman Images.
  • The NFT will go live on August 12, and we will soon convey the terms of the sale.

Salvator NFT: Its history and its journey

Salvator Mundi’s painting journey spans over 500 years. It began with attribution to Leonardo da Vinci and a pitch for over $100 million at Christie’s New York in 2017. The artwork now belongs to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, while its current location remains a mystery.

Furthermore, it is now going to return as an NFT in the digital domain. ElmonX, a leading digital asset platform, is behind this launch and has partnered with international image licensing firm Bridgeman Images. 

In addition to that, Bridgeman Images has shown excitement by saying, “As the world’s leading specialists in licensing fine art, cultural, and historical media for reproduction, we are delighted to collaborate with ElmonX, experts at the forefront of NFT art creation.” 

More details on the partnership

This partnership has already witnessed the conversion of several timeless classics into NFTs. This includes the Mona Lisa by Da Vinci and Starry Night by Van Gogh. Also, The Thinker by Rodin, and Nympheas by Monet. In fact, author Ben Lewis has also created an NFT of Salvator Mundi. The NFT is clutching a fistful of dollars in place of the crystal orb.

Moreover, these digital assets gained attention and boosted sales on the Opensea NFT marketplace. Recently, the Mona Lisa NFT was sold for 3.7 ETH, which equates to $6,764.

As we approach the NFT launch of Salvator Mundi, more details and the terms of the sale will be revealed. Surely, the transition of Salvator Mundi into the digital space has the potential to provide an immersive experience for art enthusiasts.
