No Picasso NFTs – For Now!

Royal Rosamond Press is proudly selling The Picasso NFT Stories because they are a prime example of what I have been going through with my Family Art, News, and Literature. I made videos about my Counterfeit Daughter, and, the estate seal applied to the art of Christine Rosamond Benton.

Today, on January 28, 2022, I will begin to canvases of “Marina Picasso, and her son, Florian Picasso, showed a ceramic work to The Associated Press this week in Geneva”. I will render one canvas in the style of Picasso, and, the other will be a realistic work of art. Both will be sold as NFT works of authenticity as an integral part of my newspaper-blog ‘Royal Rosamond Press’ named after my grandfather, the self-published writer, Royal Rosamond.

As a Futurian Author, I can see The Future of Non-Fungible Assets. My un-finished novel ‘The Gideon Computer’ has come true with the crashing of Johnny Depp’s server. My story ‘Chameleon Art’ began in 186, is…The First NFT Tale. I will be….The World’s First NFT Art Critic and Investment Advisor. My families involvement in the Quest to Know – who really wrote Shakespeare’s plays – hurtles me to the top of the quest to determine what is Authentic NFT, and what is Counterfeit NFT. Leave the layers out of this. I am putting together the First NFT Board of Law and Art Order.

‘For Now’

“NFTs are effectively digital certificates of authenticity that can be attached to digital art or pretty much anything that comes in digital form audio files, video clips, animated stickers, even a news article read online.

Richard Malka, a lawyer for Diana Widamaier Picasso, another granddaughter of the artist, sent the same statement. Neuer issued a warning that any association with a Picasso work would violate artistic monopoly, and any NFT billed as linked to such a work would be a counterfeit.

Jean-Jacques Neuer, a lawyer for the Picasso Administration – which manages works held by five Picasso descendants, including Marina, and oversees the use of the Picasso name contacted the AP on Thursday to say that it has not approved the sale of any Picasso NFT” and that a NFT by Florian Picasso and his collaborators were his own creation, independent of any claim vis-a-vis Pablo Picasso and his works.

Family clarifies no 'Picasso NFT' is set to be sold online

Pablo Picasso’s family is not selling a digital asset linked to one of his works after all. After a granddaughter and great-grandson of the artist trumpeted the upcoming sale, lawyers for the family said Thursday that his heirs have not authorized the launch of any such Picasso NFT. An intra-family disagreement has cropped up over it.Marina Picasso, and her son, Florian Picasso, showed a ceramic work to The Associated Press this week in Geneva that they said was a piece by the Spanish great that would be linked to a non-fungible asset being sold online. They and their managers said the pottery bowl itself and an NFT would be sold in March at auction. Maybe we should have been a bit more clear from the beginning, said Cyril Noterman, the longtime business manager for Florian Picasso, who is a DJ and music producer. Noterman said more than 1,000 NFTs going on sale starting on Friday were in fact linked to Florian’s work, not that of his great-grandfather.Also ReadCrypto winter: What does it mean, and could it extend into an ‘ice age’?

Rosamond Digital Crypto Art & Words

Posted on January 26, 2022 by Royal Rosamond Press

I awoke with an idea for another cable series, then went to my computer, and read this;

Picasso heirs launch digital art piece to ride ‘crypto’ wave – News 40 | WNKY Television

When I graduated from Serenity Lane in 1987, I read exerts from my short story called ‘Chemillén Art. It is about a couple who go to Bi-Mart to buy their first digital canvas that that they hang on their wall and plug in. The computer chips behind the FLAT SCREEN-CANVAS reach out and feel your vibrations and access your decor, then, before your eyes – as you sip wine on the sofa – it renders you a personal masterpiece in the style of a great master. I have this on a Brother disc and will have my computer guy put it on a disc so I can publish it in a serial.

The rebirth of my daughter as Willow Maree Rosamond, is spot on. I will seek a computer expert who can crank-out knock-off Rosamonds destined for the Non-Fungible Token Market. You too can own a piece of Rena Easton – the most beautiful woman in the world. You can capture her total beauty and increase your crypto currency value in the world.

GENEVA (AP) — Pablo, meet Crypto.

Heirs of Pablo Picasso, the famed 20th-century Spanish artist, are vaulting into 21st-century commerce by selling 1,010 digital art pieces of one of his ceramic works that has never before been seen publicly — riding a fad for “crypto” assets that have taken the art and financial worlds by storm.

For an exclusive interview before the formal launch this week, Picasso’s granddaughter, Marina Picasso, and her son Florian Picasso opened up their apartment — which is swimming in works from their illustrious ancestor — in an upscale Geneva neighborhood. There they offered up a glimpse, however tantalizingly slim, of the piece behind what they’re billing as an unprecedented fusion of old-school fine art and digital assets.

They’re looking to cash in on and ride a wave of interest in non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, which have netted millions for far-less-known artists and been criticized by some as environmentally costly get rich schemes.ADVERTISEMENT

A Picasso, his family’s promoters say, would mark the entry of a Grand Master into the game.

In economics jargon, a fungible token is an asset that can be exchanged on a one-for-one basis. Think of dollars or bitcoins — each one has the exact same value and can be traded freely. A non-fungible object, by contrast, has its own distinct value, like an old house or a classic car.

Cross this notion with cryptocurrency technology known as the blockchain and you get NFTs. They are effectively digital certificates of authenticity that can be attached to digital art or, well, pretty much anything else that comes in digital form — audio files, video clips, animated stickers, even a news article read online.

“We’re trying to build a bridge between the NFT world and the fine art world,” said Florian Picasso, the artist’s great-grandson.

The artist’s descendants are playing close to the vest, to drum up interest and protect — for now — a family heirloom. They’re showing only a sliver of the underside of the work linked to the NFTs, a ceramic piece about the size of a large salad bowl. The exposed parts show forms like a thick yellow line, a dribbling green splotch, and a brushed-on number “58” at the base.

Marina Picasso says the cherished pottery piece dates to October 1958, when she was a child.

“It’s a work that represents a face, and it’s very expressive,” she said. “It’s joyful, happy. It represents life … It’s one of those objects that have been part of our life, our intimate lives — my life with my children.”

Sotheby’s is hosting an auction in March that will include a unique NFT as well as the actual ceramic bowl. A first-phase, online sale of more than 1,000 other NFTs starts Friday through the Nifty Gateway and Origin Protocol platforms.

Florian Picasso said they agreed on the colorful ceramic piece because it was “a fun one” to start.

Johnny Depp is selling over 10,000 unique NFTs drawn from his paintings of friends and personal heroes.

The actor is releasing the non-fungible tokens — one-of-a-kind, verifiable digital assets traded using blockchain technology — under the collection name “Never Fear Truth.”

The portraits, developed from original artwork by Depp and then embellished and animated, include Johnny himself, Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor, Hunter S. Thompson, Heath Ledger, daughter Lily-Rose Depp, Tim Burton, Johnny’s late dog Mooh and a fictional character created by his son called Bunnyman.

Depp, 58, said in a statement, “I’ve always used art to express my feelings and to reflect on those who matter most to me, like my family, friends and people I admire. My paintings surround my life, but I kept them to myself and limited myself. No one should ever limit themselves.”

Depp’s style is a mix of pop and street art, with images of pop-culture figures rendered in vibrant colors. The collection is the first public look at his paintings, which are said to be reflections of the individual’s character as Depp sees it.

Twenty-five percent of all proceeds from the sales will be donated to charities including the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital, Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation and The Gonzo Trust, created in the memory of Depp’s hero Hunter S. Thompson.

Purchasing a “Never Fear Truth” NFT will grant owners access to Johnny’s exclusive community on Discord, a community platform for fans to collaborate on creative projects.

Depp added, “We decided to release a series of portraits, but in a way that could also give something back. Having the opportunity to salute my supporters and support the charities that have been so important to my family is an incredible gift. I hope we can create a new community of friends around these NFTs. My involvement in the NFT space has just begun.”

Ten thousand NFTs can be purchased via www.neverfeartruth.com — with applications opening Wednesday — and secondary sales supported by leading multi-chain NFT marketplace www.rarible.com. Each NFT is also backed by a high-resolution physical edition which can be redeemed only once.

The Willow Maree Rosamond Series

Two weeks ago my therapist exclaimed with deep concern and wonder;

“How did you survive?!”

In two weeks I will show her the photograph on The Cheetah’s my childhood social club consisting of myself and my three great friends. Together we created a very magic world full of imagination and play-acting. We built forts and roads. We had a bunker! I was ‘The Fearless Leader’ with an unlimited imagination. I created our world – The Cheetah World.

On January 13, 2022, I reborn my daughter and gave her a new name…..

WILLOW MAREE ROSAMOND

Alas, she will be the muse I wanted her to be – that she deserved to be! Around Willow I will create a historic-fictional world based on some rare facts! Gone will be the evil input and lies of outsiders who plotted to own the estate of Christine Rosamond Benton – before she drowned in March of 1994.

Willow Maree Rosamond will own a prestigious art gallery in Carmel, and a famous house that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Her brother, John Vincent Rosamond, lives in the Hancock House on Beacon Hill that belonged to Connecticut Rose who was captured by Indians, along with her infant son. Rose had married Captain Isaac Hull of the U.S.S. Constitution. The Hancock House was tragically torn down and will be rebuilt in a fictional manner employing real history.

I will author a series of Willow books and send out a proposal for a series. Perhaps there will be a movie? I would love to be the Art Director! There will be illustrations for the Willow Series. Here is The Rose Wing Art Gallery I created four years ago.
