Samsung Electronics today announced its commitment to the world of art and culture by adding 38 new art pieces from the Thyssen Museum in Spain to its Art Store.
The pieces are an addition to the existing collection available since last October, when Samsung and the Thyssen Museum presented an exhibition named “The Impressionists and The Photography”, composed of six iconic art pieces by impressionist painters from the museum. The new additions include masterpieces painted by artists such as Claude Monet or Auguste Renoir. Samsung The Frame now boasts a catalogue with 44 art pieces from the Thyssen Museum that users can enjoy in vivid picture quality. The art pieces are available both under a single purchase and monthly subscription.
Some of the highlights of this collection are key pieces of art in Post-impressionism such as The Stevedores in Arles by Vincent van Gogh or Bottle, Carafe, Jug and Lemons by Paul Cézanne. Artistic movements such as German Expressionism are also covered. Woman on a Divan, by August Macke, stands out, and so do several pieces by the Italian landscape painter, Canaletto. The collection also incorporates one of Picasso’s disciples and master of Spanish Cubism, Juan Gris, and his work, The Smoker, in addition to the remarkable female artist, Lyubov Popova, and her masterpiece Painterly Architectonic (Still Life: Instruments), known for its reference to Constructivism.
This is the third collection from a Spanish art gallery to be part of Samsung The Frame partnership. With Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum joining the collections, Samsung Art Store now has more than 1,200 art pieces and photographs in 4K quality from museums and galleries around the world such as the Prado Museum in Madrid, the Albertina Museum in Vienna, the Tate Modern in London, the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Hermitage State Museum in Saint Petersburg, Magnum Photos and LUMAS.
“We are excited to provide globally renowned works of art in The Frame’s Art Store. By integrating these masterpieces in partnership with the Thyssen Museum, Samsung The Frame users will enjoy a unique experience from their own homes,” said Wonjin Lee, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.
