RenascenceNFT is a collection of 4096 Free NFTs Inspired by Benozzo Gozzoli's Renaissance Masterpiece, Journey of the Magi, and the Ninth Free NFT drop by Art101.
Benozzo Gozzoli's Journey of the Magi is the preeminent illustration of Medici Florence. A painting more famous than the painter himself, the fresco depicts a young Lorenzo the Magnificent, supreme financier of the Renaissance, leading a procession of wise men.
Commissioned in the 1450s by Cosimo de Medici for the family's private chapel, it encapsulates the relationship between creator and patron.
One cannot exist without the other.
Whereas a few wealthy families financed and revolutionized traditional art, NFT royalties democratized and transformed the digital arts sparking a digital renaissance. A digital renaissance now in tumult as crypto plummets and creator fees come into question.
An ensuing uncertainty that has free NFT projects, including Art101, looking more and more like relics of a bygone era.
