Beautiful art lights up a home and of course, good lighting enhances that effect. But there is no one-size-fits-all approach when using lighting for art - and there are several potential pitfalls. It calls for expertise and thorough knowledge about the play of light on displayed artworks. At Fine Art India, we ensure best lighting options with best visual effects for your valuable pieces.
These are Pin spotlights that direct light onto individual artworks. This is a great way of illuminating any form of displayed art.

You can wash the entire wall instead. Wall washers come in many forms namely, recessed, surface-mounted, and track-mounted fixtures that can be placed on walls, ceilings, and floors. These deliver a wide distribution of light.
Picture lights are mounted on the wall or the frames of individual artworks. In this, the light source is placed really close to the work of art, typically with very low-wattage lamps.
It goes without saying that incorrect lighting can damage art in the long term and impair visual effect. This happens due to two reasons, heat and ultraviolet (UV) light.
To minimize this damage, we equip the lights with UV filters and place them at the recommended safe distance from the artworks. Alternately, we can use only LED bulbs, which emit no UV light and very little heat. "Longevity is very important in art". Invest in the right lighting now, so it doesn't end up costing you much more in the end.
