The majority of the world's most famous paintings are currently sitting in museums and private collections, technically available for people to see, but difficult to access compared to the onslaught of visual information the average American consumes day to day. Thankfully, digital disruptors Electric Objects have teamed up with a slew of big museums to make this treasure trove of human effort more accessible. The Getty, The National Gallery of Art, LACMA, The Rijksmuseum, and The New York Public Library have unlocked hundreds of artworks from their collections, allowing them to be displayed on Electric Object's sleek digital picture frame. This means that work by by van Gogh, Cèzanne, Rembrandt, Monet, Manet, and more can surge through your living room, office, or whereever at the push of a button. This also coincides with a recent drop in the EO1's price from $599 to $299, making this body of work even more accessible.
Founded by CEO Jake Levine and curator Zoë Salditch, Electric Objects doesn't just allow you to hang any work you want in your home, but functions as curatorial force exposing you to art and artwork you otherwise might not see. This arrangement aligns with both goals, providing access to favorites and creating a library of artwork you know is good.
Check out a few select masterpieces in the images below, and peruse the collection yourself here.
