About Us

Hogarth Picture lights

"Dear friend, I could not believe the dire quality and poor design of lights over the last 30 years, instead of technology improving design - Picture lights have been cheapened and viewed by lighting companies as (not much better than) a wall light with no regard for quality lighting of paintings. I relentlessly searched for my own collection and gallery with no avail. As for today I still find that the basic requirement from a frame fitted picture light to light the painting with uniform illumination is still as illusive as 30 years ago"

"to overcome this I decided to design my own picture light"...Robert Hogarth
