Samsung Frame TV and the Louvre have come together to give you the ultimate art experience – right in the comfort of your home.
The South Korean electronics giant has just announced a new partnership with the iconic Paris museum. Starting now, you’ll be able to display some of the Louvre’s most famous works on your wall in high-definition via its Frame TV.
Since introducing the television to the market in 2017, Samsung has made it clear that it is more than a device to watch your favourite shows or stream your preferred movies. The Frame has undergone enough modifications over the years to move it from a mere lifestyle TV to a prime lifestyle device your home needs.
Before the addition of artwork from the Louvre, owners of the Samsung TV could access 1,500 works from museums all over the world, including the Prado Museum in Madrid, the Tate Modern in London and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam via its Art Store platform. Now, thanks to the new agreement, 40 works from the Louvre will now be accessible.
These include famous artworks like Paolo Veronese’s The Wedding at Cana, Jacques-Louis David’s The Coronation of Napoleon and, of course, Leonardo’s masterpiece the Mona Lisa. A short description will follow each work to give users a glimpse into their background and history.
Photographs of the majestic museum and some of its iconic features, like the Louvre Pyramid and Tuileries Garden, are also available. There’s also the promise of new exclusive content to come before the year is out.
“This year, we are proud to join forces with one of the most famous museums in the world, the Louvre, to enhance this collection and offer a taste of French heritage throughout the world,” Samsung executive Wonjin Lee said in a statement.
The Frame TV is part of Samsung’s lifestyle televisions, and it is designed to be a TV when it’s on and an art display screen when it’s off. Users can also display their personal pictures through the TV, making it a perfect decor device for your home.
