With the aid of a prominent institution, Samsung is increasing the range of art that is accessible on its Frame TVs. The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and the firm today announced a collaboration that would bring 38 pieces to Samsung’s Art Store from different divisions like the American Wing, Asian Art, Islamic Art, European Paintings, and many more. With the goal of bringing art and art education to the country’s population, a group of American businesspeople, investors, prominent artists, and philosophers formed the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1870.
In collaboration with the Met, the Samsung Art Store enables the users of the frame to continuously transform any space by displaying more than 2,300 pieces of digital art, especially iconic works of art. The Samsung Art Store is only accessible on the Frame by Samsung, a 4K smart TV with a picture frame bezel and a billion different color options that displays art when it’s off and vibrant, lifelike TV when it’s on. The viewers can upgrade the supplied slim-fit wall mount to the new auto-rotating wall mount to show content either vertically or horizontally.
The Samsung Art Store explores centuries of art, from old masters like Botticelli, Leonardo, Goya, and Van Gogh to contemporary artists like Shinique Smith and many more, through different monthly programs where the works of artists and galleries are showcased to Frame users in 42 countries. The Samsung Art Store’s digital collections as well as user-generated photography give a stunning look when displayed on its matte display, which decreases light reflection and gives a canvas-like feel.
Iconic pieces of art displayed in the Samsung Art Store:
- Edgar Degas’ The Rehearsal of the Ballet Onstage (ca. 1874)
- Vincent Van Gogh’s Sunflowers (1887)
- Paul Cézanne’s Still Life with Apples and a Pot of Primroses (ca. 1890)
- Georges Seurat’s Circus Sideshow (Parade du Cirque) (1887–1888)
- Egyptian wedjat eye amulet (ca. 1070–664 B.C.)
- The Unicorn Rests in a Garden (1495–1505)
- Katsushika Hokusai’s Under the Mannen Bridge at Fukagawa (ca. 1830–32)
- Calming the Stormy Sea at Tsunoda in Exile to Sado Island (1835–1836)
