    The Frame, Samsung's lifestyle smart TV that doubles as a digital canvas is getting a new art collection as part of the Missing Masterpieces exhibition, Samsung UK announced today. Art pieces landing on The Frame is nothing new; in fact the art store is one of the smart TV's main features, but the 12 artworks that are being added to The Frame today are special because they are digital copies of paintings that cannot be physically seen anywhere in the world.

    COVID-19 has had a large impact on the way people absorb art and culture as museums around the world have not been operating within normal parameters in the age of social distancing. This is one of the reason why Samsung has decided to bring this stunning art gallery to The Frame: to give people a remote way to admire these pieces from their homes.

    But another reason why Samsung is releasing the Missing Masterpieces collection to The Frame is to avoid losing any trace of these missing artworks from our society. In short, the Missing Masterpieces digital exhibition contains 12 artworks that have been lost in history or stolen and remain shrouded in secrecy.

    A few examples of stolen art that's now featured in the Missing Masterpieces exhibition include View Auvers-sur-Oise by Paul Cézanne, which was stolen during the 1999 New Year's Eve festivities; Chloe & Emma by Barbora Kysilkova, which was stolen from a museum in Norway; and Spring Garden by Van Gogh, which went missing on the day that would've marked the artist's 167th birthday.

    Any information on these missing artworks can be valuable

    The Missing Masterpieces exhibition has been curated by Samsung in partnership with art crime expert and founder of the ARCA (Association for Research into Crimes Against Art), Dr. Noah Charney. And, surprisingly enough, finding clues about the location of these missing artworks is yet another reason behind the release of the Missing Masterpieces exhibition for The Frame.

    According to ARCA's founder, these missing art pieces have been surrounded by contradictory media reports and Reddit speculations regarding their possible whereabouts for a long time. There is an overwhelming volume of information and clues are out there, said Dr. Noah Charney while adding that social media can be of help with solving these mysteries.

    This may sound like vain hope but every bit of information can be useful and, according to Dr Charney, It’s not unheard of for an innocuous tip posted online to be the key that unlocks a case.

    The Missing Masterpieces exhibition was released for The Frame today, November 12, and it will remain live until February 10, 2021.
