The Petworth picture light can be made to suit any size of art work.
Hogarth’s Petworth picture light was the outcome of a collaboration with the National Trust and Hogarth Lighting.
Over a six month period Hogarth worked closely with the team at Petworth House. The conservators wanted to keep the look and feel of the old picture lights that have been in Petworth House for many years, so it was our task to create a new and updated version. The Petworth picture light was born!
The new Petworth picture lights have the most up to date LED technology with unique internal designs by Hogarth for illumination of fine art works.
Available in any length and designed to blend in with any setting
The Petworth picture light can illuminate with a great degree of accuracy any size of art work.
Can be attached to the picture frame or wall, emitting zero heat and U.V. makes it totally safe for illuminating fine art. This means a long bulb life which equals low power usage.
Image shows the Turner Exhibition which ran from January to March 2015. Only the Turners were lit in the vast 'North Gallery' of Petworth House.
Our Petworth picture light has a very clever shutter system so that no bulbs are seen from the front or side of the picture light, this is totally unique to our picture lights.
The Hogarth L.E.D. (Light Emitting Diode) produces no U.V. (ultra violet) and no heat and has a bulb life of 100,000 hours, approximately 10 years.
If your fine art is valuable the Hogarth L.E.D. bulb is the only option to eliminate all U.V. and heat onto the canvas.

Like our Classic picture light, the Petworth picture light has patented features enabling the illumination to be adjusted to fit the canvas.
The picture light can also be used with our ‘Invisible Wire’ system, meaning no need to channel walls, simply stick the wire to the wall and decorate over.
The picture light slides into a bracket which can be fitted to the frame or wall. This allows the picture light to be easily removed.
The results at Petworth House speak for themselves, great picture lighting you must see to believe.
Our picture lights come ready for use from the box and are easy to install.
How to install and hang our picture lights - for more information see Technical Cut Sheets.
The hood is deceptively small, only 5cm (2 inches) wide and 5cm (2 inches) high. Smaller lights have 1 arm and longer picture lights 2 or more.
Our Petworth picture light has all the Hogarth adjustment features.
Height adjustment from the back of the frame - the hood of the picture light has a swivel to help with height of illumination.
Each bulb has its own shutter system to control vertical illumination to stop the light from flooding onto the walls.
Standard bulb - L.E.D. 2700K 97 CRI
Hood - Aluminium
Other parts brass to suit installation type
These images show the back of painting with picture light fitted.
The attachment bracket is only 2 inches wide by 3/4 inches deep, light and easy to install to the wall or frame - ideal if your fine art is a watercolour with a thin frame.
Our picture lights can have small switches fitted. The on/off cable can be any length and fitted in any position on the back of the frame.
It is easy to operate the light by a finger tip and comes with a pull cord. The close up shows the relative size of the switch.
