Samsung Electronics has forged an exciting partnership with the Metropolitan Museum of Art to expand the selection of artwork available on its Frame TVs. In an announcement made today, the tech giant revealed that it would be integrating 38 carefully curated pieces from the Met's illustrious collection into its subscription-based Art Store, enhancing the visual appeal and cultural depth of its Frame TV lineup.

The collaboration between Samsung and the Met represents a significant stride towards democratizing art and making it accessible to a broader audience. This endeavor aligns with the Met's historical mission of bringing art and culture into the lives of people worldwide, dating back to its establishment in 1870.

The newly added artwork will be accessible through a subscription service, priced at $4.99 per month or $49.90 annually, offering an extensive library of over 2,300 digital art pieces. This collection spans across various styles and eras, sourced from over 800 artists, and established partnerships with renowned museums, galleries, and leading art e-commerce platforms.

Subscribers to the Samsung Art Store can now adorn their living spaces with iconic masterpieces from the Met's diverse curatorial departments, spanning from the American Wing to Asian Art, Egyptian Art to European Paintings, and Islamic Art to much more. 

Among the featured artworks, users will be able to choose from beloved classics like Vincent Van Gogh's "Sunflowers" (1887), Edgar Degas' "The Rehearsal of the Ballet Onstage" (circa 1874), and Paul Cézanne's "Still Life with Apples and Pot of Primroses" (circa 1890).

Furthermore, owners of Samsung's Frame TVs can display not only renowned paintings but also historical artifacts such as an Egyptian wedjat eye amulet (circa 1070-664 B.C.) and medieval treasures like "The Unicorn Rests in a Garden" (1495-1505) from the famed Unicorn Tapestries.

The collaboration extends its embrace to celebrate Japanese artworks with pieces like Katsushika Hokusai's "Under the Mannen Bridge at Fukagawa" (circa 1830-1832) and Utagawa Kuniyoshi's "Concise Illustrated Biography of Monk Nichiren: Calming the Stormy Sea at Tsunoda in Exile to Sado Island" (1835-1836). Additionally, historically significant American artworks like Emanuel Leutze's "Washington Crossing the Delaware" (1851) will be available for Frame TV owners to enjoy.

The Frame TV, already renowned for its distinctive features such as a Matte Display finish and customizable bezels, offers an immersive and versatile platform for art enthusiasts to enjoy a diverse range of masterpieces.

The 2023 edition of The Frame TV comes in various sizes, from 32 inches to 85 inches, ensuring compatibility with different living spaces. Moreover, it's worth noting that the Art Store is backward-compatible with previous models of The Frame, allowing existing owners to enjoy the enriched art collection without the need for an upgrade.

Samsung's commitment to both design and picture quality is exemplified by The Frame TV. Its capacity to seamlessly blend into home decor while delivering outstanding visuals makes it a unique addition to any living space. For those who prefer vertical art or photography, an auto-rotating mount is available for purchase, offering flexibility in showcasing artwork as intended by the artist.

Enthusiasts can expect to explore the latest iteration of Samsung's TV lineup, including The Frame TV, at CES 2024, set to debut in the coming months.
