Vera Molnár's NFT Collection Drops Successfully

Vera Molnár's  "Themes and Variations" NFT collection sold out in less than an hour in a Sotheby's Dutch auction yesterday, generating more than $1 million in sales. 

The Deets

  • 500 generative art NFTs created by Vera Molnár with the assistance of Martin Grasser, a generative artist and creative coder.
  • The collection deviates from Molnár's customary geometric forms, instead using the letters “N”, “F”, and “T”.
  • Sotheby's NFT marketplace, Sotheby’s Metaverse, tried out a new auctioning method for digital art.

The Bulk

Vera Molnár, a 99-year-old pioneering digital artist, in collaboration with generative artist Martin Grasser dropped her first work successfully yesterday. The joint work, a collection of 500 generative art NFTs titled "Themes and Variations," sold out amassing a total of 631 ETH or $1.2 million in sales.

This successful sale not only marks a triumph for the artists but also serves as a proof of concept for a novel way of auctioning digital art that Sotheby's NFT marketplace, Sotheby’s Metaverse, is currently testing. This was the first Dutch auction format conducted by the auction house in its 300-year history.
