A collection of lighting artwork case studies and testimonials. Read what our customers think about Brilliant’s approach to lighting artwork and the revolutionary ArtView LED picture light.
It addresses the issues associated with traditional picture lights – uneven light coverage, poor quality light, high energy consumption and harmful UV emissions – whilst looking perfectly in keeping with both traditional and modern interiors. It also adds the potential for a remarkable degree of control for each individual picture.
After being approached by one of our clients to light their significant collection of portraits (many 2-3m tall) we developed the ArtView in association with one of our specialist LED suppliers. Since launching it in 2014 we have lit some wonderful art collections, and have developed different versions to suit both larger and smaller canvases. If you’re interested in the best possible treatment for your paintings you should talk to us about what the ArtView can do for your artwork.
The largest ArtView picture lights we’ve commissioned to date are c.2.2m long (going longer than this can cause issues with delivery), and where the objects being lit are larger (e.g. we’ve lit a 5.5m wide tapestry) we can use multiple fittings designed so that the light is continuous across them.
As a highly customised fitting prices vary, but indicatively a c.1m ArtView picture light is c.£800-850, a 1.5m one is c.£1100, both ex delivery and VAT. If a site visit is required – advisable if the artwork is complex, if there is a lot of it, or if we need to discuss how the picture lights are cabled and dimmed – then this is charged at our normal hourly rates.
