SINGAPORE – Media OutReach Newswire – 28 March 2024 – Samsung Singapore today announced in partnership with the National Heritage Board (NHB), that Samsung Art Store will see the addition of 10 artworks from Singapore’s National Collection. Art and heritage lovers will be offered the opportunity to enjoy a curated collection that showcase the changes in Singapore’s physical and urban landscape through the years, and selected master works of Asian painting traditions.

These art pieces join over 2,500 artworks from world-renowned museums and galleries, including Louvre Museum, The Met, the Van Gogh Museum, the National Gallery Singapore, and many others. With the Frame TV’s matte display feature, the texture of the on-screen display provides a realistic art experience that turns art into a showpiece, bringing art galleries into your home.

The collection for Samsung Art Store is jointly curated by Samsung and NHB. The 10 artworks were selected as they are representative of the National Collection, which serves to connect the past, present, and future generations of Singaporeans, and deemed best to be displayed on a 4K display screen like the Frame TV.

The collection includes ‘The Esplanade from Scandal Point‘, a painting by John Turnbull Thomson which depicts our National Monument the Padang as a centre of social life as far back as the 19th century, and ‘View of Read Bridge at Clarke Quay‘, a work by pioneer water-colourist Lim Cheng Hoe featuring the iconic Singapore River. Other notable historical works include ‘View of Raffles Place’ and ‘View from Government Hill’ – depicting Singapore in its early days – and ‘Bird on Fence’.

Ms Chang Hwee Nee, Chief Executive Officer, NHB, said: “Our National Collection tells the story of Singapore’s past and present, for our future. As the custodian of Singapore’s heritage, NHB aims to raise a greater awareness of, and deepen appreciation for, these national treasures. Our collaboration with Samsung introduces a new and additional touchpoint for Singaporeans to enjoy the National Collection through its Frame TVs. It is akin to having these beautiful masterpieces digitally displayed in our homes, which will hopefully inspire more to visit our museums to see them in real life.”

Dennis Jang, President, Samsung Singapore said: “We believe that art should not only inspire, but also inform and educate. With the introduction of the National Collection in the Art Store, our users will be able to appreciate art, and learn more about the history of Singapore. Such collaboration truly shows how technology can bring art and history to more individuals, and the significant role our Art Store plays to bring such monumental pieces to the homes of future generations.”

Samsung and NHB plan to explore expanding the collection in the Art Store, to create greater awareness of other artworks in the National Collection.
