The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) is collaborating with Samsung Electronics to bring some of the Museum’s most treasured works of art to millions of Samsung Smart TV screens as digital art. The Samsung Art Store1—which enables users of The Frame to continuously transform any space by displaying more than 2,300 pieces of digital art, including works from the most renowned artists, museums, and industry tastemakers—is today unveiling a selection of iconic artworks in collaboration with The Met.
Samsung Art Store users can choose from 38 pieces across a wide range of The Met’s storied curatorial departments, including the American Wing, Asian Art, Egyptian Art, European Paintings, Islamic Art, and more. The selected works were chosen by Samsung Art Store Curator Daria Greene. The offering features high resolution digital reproductions of renowned artworks across a variety of cultures and time periods. Select works are currently on view at The Met in New York City.
Samsung Art Store users can display beloved works of art in their homes, including: Edgar Degas’ The Rehearsal of the Ballet Onstage (ca. 1874); Vincent Van Gogh’s Sunflowers (1887); Paul Cézanne’s Still Life with Apples and Pot of Primroses (ca. 1890); and Georges Seurat’s Circus Sideshow (Parade du Cirque) (1887–88). The Frame owners can also display ancient artifacts such as an Egyptian wedjat eye amulet (ca. 1070–664 B.C.), and medieval treasures including The Unicorn Rests in a Garden (1495–1505), the famed French and South Netherlandish textile from the Unicorn Tapestries. Celebrated Japanese artworks such as Katsushika Hokusai’s Under the Mannen Bridge at Fukagawa (ca. 1830–32) as well as Utagawa Kuniyoshi’s Concise Illustrated Biography of Monk Nichiren: Calming the Stormy Sea at Tsunoda in Exile to Sado Island (1835–36) can also be displayed on The Frame. The collection also features several historically significant American artworks like Emanuel Leutze’s Washington Crossing the Delaware (1851).
