Image shows a very large landscape at the In and Out Club. Working with the In and Out team, the solution to lighting this artwork was to use two picture lights. The team chose our Classic picture lights and we were able to successfully illuminate this vast canvas very well.

Project

We had the very good fortune to light some fabulous paintings at the Ironmongers Hall in the Barbican, London. The paintings were very large, full size portraits and panoramic landscapes.

Our Contemporary picture light was finished to the same color as the panelling to try and hide the light – note there is no overspill of light onto the top of the frame, our L.E.D.'s evenly cover the canvas with illumination.

Our challenge at London's famous, In and Out, Naval and Military club was to light full size portraits. Our Classic picture light was up to the task. We supplied twenty five Classic picture lights, each one being handmade for each piece of fine art.

Hood width can be made from 1 inch to 12 feet long
