Lighting for art
What does good lighting for art mean?
Good lighting plays a crucial role in the presentation and effect of art. It is more than a simple necessity to make paintings, sculptures or other artistic works visible. Rather, it significantly influences the atmosphere, the emotions and the perception of art.
Good lighting for art means that the light sources are positioned and adjusted to show off the artwork in all its beauty and depth. It should preserve the natural appearance of the artwork and at the same time emphasise the artist's expressive power.
Dos & Don'ts: What should be considered when lighting art?
Set a focus
Outside the artwork, the incidence of light should be low. Zoom lenses ensure precise accentuation.
Go for flexible solutions
Needs can change at any time. By changing lenses, you can remain as flexible as possible in terms of lighting.
Pay attention to evenness
Large works of art in particular require even illumination. The respective size dictates the choice of luminaire.
Take account of possible reflections
Glass or canvas? The tilt angle determines whether glare is reflected back.
Set the mood
Intense light contrasts can quickly become irritating. For a more beautiful experience, we advise a mix of accent light and diffuse light.
Consider the quality of light
A CRI (color rendering index) which is too low can affect color rendering. Look for a high value. All our luminaires have a CRI greater than 95, guaranteeing outstanding light quality that is as close as possible to daylight.
