Samsung Collection: An Art Gallery in The Frame

Nov 15. 2017

The Frame is more than TV, it’s art

Right out of the box, The Frame is a stunning TV that you can place anywhere to add value to the room. Because it hangs like a real frame, it blends into your decor seamlessly, giving you more creative freedom with your home’s interior. You can learn more about The Frame itself here in our previous post. But it’s not just beautiful on the outside.Even more beauty appears once you turn the TV off—into Art Mode, that is. Art Mode is what allows you to display stunning works of art directly on The Frame’s screen.

Included with Art Mode is Samsung Collection, an exclusive selection of 100 artworks from 37 renowned artists and spanning 10 categories. It’s been specially curated for The Frame by internationally acclaimed art curator Elise Van Middelem. About her selections she said, “The Frame has the potential to change our perception of viewing art: how it is approached, collected, and displayed. We chose to select 100 artworks, divided into 10 categories … this would allow The Frame viewers to have the feeling of owning a curated art collection of museum quality.”

The categories available in both Samsung Collection and the extensive further selection in the Art Store range from landscapes and wildlife to architecture and patterns, giving you art you’re sure to love, no matter your tastes. And what’s more is it’s easily interchangeable so you can update your art with the season, your decor, or even your mood. And it’s not just beautiful to see, it can also inspire you. See examples of the 10 categories below.

In addition to showing examples of the artwork, we wanted to highlight some of the artists included in the Samsung Collection to introduce you to what you’ll be able to display on The Frame. Get ready to be inspired and excited—these artists were chosen not just because their art is breathtaking, but because it’s especially beautiful in your home on The Frame.

If photographs of nature are what you love, Yann Arthus-Bertrand has what you’re looking for. His photos capture Earth’s beauty and he recently gave a TED Talk about his stunning aerial photograph series, “Earth from Above,” which was published in 1999 and has sold 3 million copies. He also founded the GoodPlanet Foundation. Considering his love of nature, it only makes sense that he was named a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN Environment.
