    Hogarth Picture Lights provides the best fine art lighting system on the market today.
    Breakthrough LED (light emitting diode) Technology which emits ZERO heat and UV! Until now there has not been a Picture Light on the market that does not emit harmful UV (ultraviolet radiation.) Hogarth have spent 4 years developing an LED that has zero UV emission.

    Precision crafted lighting fixture for serious art collectors desiring the best.

    Lamp Dimensions:
  • Protrusion (from wall:) 11 inches
  • Width of Hood: 2 inches
  • Width of Light: 9 inches (22.9 cms)
    By turning the end pieces of the light the illumination can be adjusted to any size of painting up to 60 inches. For larger works, additional lights can be used, or a custom light can be discussed with us.

  • Using our patented technology - US Patent No 09/764818 -  a precision mechanism is adjusted by you to focus light on the desired surface- and nothing else.
  • No need to worry about measuring your art work. The illumination is adjusted by you both vertically and horizontally.
  • If you sell your art work and buy another, simply adjust the Hogarth Light to the new size.
  • Mount to the frame or wall using our universal mounting bracket.
  • Hogarth Picture Lights were designed for mounting above hanging finished artwork (on the wall above or on the paintings frame.) However, we mount these directly
    onto Artists' Easels and Painting Stations too!

  • 4 Finishes to suit most frames and interiors.

    24K gold available - price upon request.

    Battery Option

    The Battery option comes with 2 battery packs, (one for lighting whilst the other is charging,) and a charging unit. Battery Type: Nickel-Metal-Hydride. 
    Batteries last 6-8 hours and recharge in 1.5 hours


    Invisible Wire System
    It is sometimes not possible to cut wires into walls and can be expensive and a disruption.
    If you want an alternative to a battery option use our Invisible Wire System
    See the installation below.

    Before with no illumination:

    The property was very old and the client did not want to install cables in the walls.
    Spot lights would look out of character on the Oak beams.

    A trailing wire from the plug socket (showing to the right) would not look good. Another solution was needed - our "Invisible Wire System!"

    The Hogarth Invisible Wire System:
    Easy Installation procedure:
    Copper track applied to wall.

    Copper track is just 4 thousands inch thick with a non conductive self adhesive backing.
    Terminated at the painting and the nearest plug socket - on the right.
    Comes with all the kit and a plug in transformer.



    Installation completed:
    Wall re painted with no sign of track
    Installation time to fit track and make
    all terminations took just 1 hour

    Light is our LED Unlacquered Brass




    The invisible wiring system includes invisible wiring to run for 18 yards - and comes with a complete pack ready to fit with plug to plug right into any standard wall electrical outlet.

    Installation and Adjustment

    Light slides into this bracket
    Bracket fitted onto back of frame
    or the wall



    LED the best choice to safely illuminate Fine Art. Comes as standard ready to hard wire with a transformer to attach behind the painting or a battery Optionor our Invisible Wire System

    Please note: the LED is only 180 Lumen. Not a very bright light, however, safer for valuable Fine Art. This conforms to museum standards (MAX 200 lumen) with our LED just under this at 180 lumen (equivalent to apprx. 30 watts.)

    Q: Can you please tell me more about the electrical work involved to install your lights?
    A: Our lights comes as standard ready to hard wire behind the painting. This is normally a recessed electrical outlet (clock boxes) or you may have wires hanging out of the wall and if this is the case it is easy to install our lights. You may be happy to attach a longer cable to the nearest wall outlet.
    If you do not have recessed outlets a residential electrical contractor could  install recessed electrical outlets (clock boxes) behind each painting.
    Hogarth have an invisible wire system and a battery option as alternatives.

    Q: How does your light fix to the painting?
    A: We have a small bracket that is screwed to the frame or the wall, the light slides into this bracket so you can hang your painting and fit the light when it is on the wall.
    Q: You say you are offering �Breakthrough Technology�, what can you tell me about that?
    A: Our technology is truly breakthrough;

  • 1. The first picture light to be able to adjust the illumination both vertically and horizontally by the customer and overcome the concerns of measuring your paintings to have your light customized at the factory.
  • 2. LED light source that is totally safe to use on Fine Art emitting ZERO UV &Heat.
  • 3. A Battery system that works
  • 4. A viable alternative to chasing walls for cables, our Invisible Wire System is a breakthrough.
    Q: What sizes of paintings can you light?
    A: Our lights adjust to illuminate from 10 to 60 inches. If you have larger paintings, it is possible to fit extra lights.
    Our standard light protrudes from the back of the painting by 13 inches and has a hood length of 10 inches.
    95% of  paintings ever painted fall within the capability of the Hogarth Light.

    Q: You have a very unique bulb. How long will it last?
    A: Our LED bulbs last 10 years and run on 7 volts so they are very ecconomical to operate. Halogen bulbs are branded and have a life of 2000 to 3000 hours and are readily available in most electrical shops.
    Q: What do I do if I replace a painting in my collection.
    A: Simply re adjust the Hogarth Light to suit.
    Q: How long is the warranty on the Hogarth Lights?
    A: Hogarth Lights come with a one year manufacturer's warranty on the fixture. Certain electrical problems such as surges, lightening etc. can damage the transformer and bulb. In this event, Hogarth will supply new transformers and bulbs at a reasonable cost.
