Press Release: WISeKey and Creative Film Partners Launch First-Ever Colonial American Artwork NFT Auction to WISe.Art MarketPlace

06/03/2021 | 01:00am EDT
   WISeKey $WKEY and Creative Film Partners Launch First-Ever 
 
   Colonial American Artwork NFT Auction to WISe.Art MarketPlace 
 
   Auction Ends on Independence Day 
 
   Geneva, Switzerland -- June 3, 2021 - WISeKey International Holding Ltd 
(SIX: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY), a leading cyber security, IoT, and AI 
platform company, and Creative Film Partners, LLC (CFP), a Richmond, VA 
based new media firm, announced today a first-of-its-kind Colonial 
American Artwork NFT auction to be held from June 21 through 
Independence Day, July 4, 2021. 
 
   The NFT up for bid is a medium-frame digital photograph of an original 
John Wollaston oil painting of George Plater III, Maryland's sixth 
Governor, from the private Tayloe family collection. George Plater III 
(1735 -- 1792) was an American planter, lawyer, and statesman from Saint 
Mary's County, Maryland. He represented Maryland in the Continental 
Congress from 1778 to 1780, and served as Governor of Maryland from 1791 
to 1792. 
 
   The original Wollaston painting, owned by J. Tayloe Emery, great (x6) 
grand-nephew of Governor George Plater, and a principal at Creative Film 
Partners, is listed in the Catalog of American Portraits as part of the 
Smithsonian Institute's National Portrait Gallery. Mr. Emery plans to 
use any proceeds from the auction to clean and restore the original 
painting, which has been in the Tayloe family collection for centuries. 
 
   The NFT auction of the George Plater portrait will take place from June 
21 to July 4, 2021 on the WISe.Art NFT MarketPlace platform and will be 
accessible from www.wise.art. 
 
   Included in this one-of-a-kind NFT auction are: a full-frame digital 
twin of the original oil painting taken by NYC-based photographer C. 
Taylor Crothers; detailed Tayloe family provenance information of the 
original painting; and, as a tangible item, a framed, signed C. Taylor 
Crothers archival color print of the portrait with an inlay of the NFT 
blockchain hashtag. 
 
   Mr. Emery commented, "This is a revolutionary idea for a painting of an 
American Revolutionary. The NFT being minted will forever be the 
official digital record of this classic American Colonial portrait and 
likely outlast the original painting itself." 
 
   "Besides just the 'WOW' factor of an NFT auction of an American Colonial 
artwork," added Emery, "the additional security created through the NFT 
itself becomes a means to help identify, restore and possibly even 
recover the painting should anything ever happen to it." 
 
   In April, WISeKey launched WISe.Art, a digital certificate of 
authenticity, creating NFTs for art pieces that will live forever on the 
blockchain, unchanged and unchallengeable, as proof of the NFT buyer's 
ownership. 
 
   "The WISe.Art announcement created a strong buzz in the global fine art 
community," said Carlos Moreira, CEO of WISeKey. "We are looking forward 
to auctioning off this incredible NFT of American Colonial history and 
providing a means of digital security for the new NFT owner and the 
original painting at the same time." 
 
   WISe.Key is the first company in the world to use dual factor 
authentication combined with blockchain technology to secure luxury 
watches and artworks.
