Bring Louvre Masterpieces Home With The Frame – Samsung Newsroom Canada

Iconic Samsung Lifestyle TV opens virtual doors to world-famous museum

Samsung Electronics recently announced a new partnership with the iconic Louvre Museum. Through this partnership with the Louvre in Paris, France, Samsung will continue to develop the Art Store[1] on his lifestyle television, The Frame.

With new works of art from the Louvre joining the collection, The Frame now offers a catalog of over 1,500 works of art from museums and galleries in 42 different countries, including the Prado Museum in Madrid, the Albertina Museum in Vienna, the Tate Modern in London, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg and LUMAS.

“Since we launched our lifestyle TV portfolio in 2017, we have focused on developing the Art Store platform with prestigious partners. We want to offer more than a television, to invite art into the homes of The Frame owners everywhere. This catalog lists the works of hundreds of artists, spanning various time periods, from ancient civilizations to modern art,” explained Wonjin Lee, President and Head of Service Biz Team at Samsung Electronics. “This year, we are proud to partner with one of the most famous museums in the world, the Louvre, to enrich this collection and introduce French heritage to the world.

Admire the treasures of the Louvre from home

By concluding a partnership with the Louvre[2], Samsung is offering all The Frame owners a chance to explore the museum through forty works of art and photography that consumers can enjoy in 4K picture quality. This selection includes must-see masterpieces such as the mona-lisa and The wedding at Cana, as well as photos of the majestic galleries of the Louvre, its architecture and its museum park (Pyramide du Louvre, Jardin des Tuileries, etc.). A brief description of each work gives users insight into their journey and history.

Samsung and the Louvre also plan to unveil other exclusive content for The Frame users later this year.

“The Louvre is a place of discovery, full of emotion, a spectacular setting for artistic masterpieces. Admiring works from its collection at home every day, along with views of the building, galleries and gardens, is a wonderful way to see and understand the extraordinary beauty of this museum,” said Yann Le Touher, head of development, brand licensing and commercial partnerships at the Louvre.

Ultra-thin design and exceptional image quality

The frame boasts a unique and customizable design that sets it apart from the rest. Designed to be a television when on and art when off, The Frame is an innovative digital canvas that reflects an individual’s personal style. The 2021 version of the lifestyle TV offers new personalized options to complement every space and every style, with two optional removable bezel frames[3]: Modern and Bevelled[4].

To complete the appeal of the artwork, The Frame can be hung on the wall on an ultra-thin stand and connected to a One Connect Box[5] via a single translucent[6] cable that integrates all TV connectors, including the power source. Users can also mount The Frame anywhere in the room on a studio stand[7].

Along with its gallery-ready design, The Frame delivers a vibrant 4K image[8] QLED picture quality powered by Quantum Dot technology with 100% color volume[9]immersing viewers in a world of rich, lifelike color.
