This treasure trove is made possible through collaborations with world-renowned museums, galleries, and leading art e-commerce platforms.

A Journey Through Art History

The highlight of this collaboration is the inclusion of 38 priceless artworks from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Art lovers in South Africa can now display iconic pieces from various periods and styles right in their homes. Here’s a glimpse of what you can expect:

The Frame TV: Where Technology Meets Artistry

Samsung’s Frame TV, available in sizes ranging from 32 inches to a stunning 85 inches, is the perfect canvas for this artwork. The TV’s unique design features a matte display and customizable bezels, making it blend seamlessly into your home decor. What sets The Frame apart is not only its aesthetic appeal but also its exceptional picture quality.

Additionally, for those who appreciate vertical artwork or photography, Samsung offers an auto-rotating mount, ensuring that every piece is displayed in its full glory.

Samsung proudly claims that its Art Store is currently the largest art gallery for any TV platform, and it’s not hard to see why. While other TV makers offer artwork screensavers, none quite match Samsung’s comprehensive package, which includes not only a visually stunning TV but also an extensive art collection to showcase on it.

What’s Next? CES 2024

Excitingly, Samsung is gearing up to unveil the latest iteration of its TV lineup, including The Frame, at CES 2024. This promises even more innovation and artistry in the realm of home entertainment.

The collaboration between Samsung and the Metropolitan Museum of Art is a game-changer for art enthusiasts in South Africa. For a modest subscription fee, you can now adorn your living room with masterpieces from around the world and across the ages, all courtesy of your Frame TV. As technology and art seamlessly merge, your home is set to become a gallery like no other.
