Samsung’s lifestyle TV, The Frame, is designed to look like a picture or art frame hanging on the wall. It can display artwork or your family photos when no one is using the TV. Artworks can be downloaded from Samsung’s Art Store, which offers a diverse collection of famous paintings and artwork in 4K resolution. Samsung just released an infographic that tells you all about the Art Store.
The Art Store is a digital marketplace designed by Samsung where users can purchase digital versions of world famous paintings and artwork. These paintings come from world-class museums and art galleries around the world. Currently, the Art Store has more than 1,500 works of art, designed by more than 626 artists, and they are collected in 42 countries around the world.
The content available in the Art Shop is collected from different time periods (575 AD to 2021) and includes Ancient, Renaissance, Baroque, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism and Contemporary art. You can find paintings by Claude Monet, Johannes Vermeer, Julia Contacessi, Leonardo Da Vinci and Vincent Van Gogh.
Samsung has also acquired modern paintings and abstract artwork from various painters and art partners, including Hyun Kim, Etsy, Magnum Photos, Saatchi Arti, and The Van Gogh Museum.
The Frame TV makes the digital copy of the artwork look like a physical painting by adjusting the brightness and colors of the screen to match the ambient lighting in the room via sensors integrated. When the TV detects (using the motion sensor) that a person has entered the room, it automatically turns on the screen and starts showing the selected artwork or painting. When the person leaves the room, the TV is turned off to save energy.
