Lighting above paintings




Has anybody ever heard of a battery operated light to install above a painting? I have a customer who wants to illuminate his newly purchased painting but has no access to an electrical outlet in the designated area. If you have ever heard of such a light could you tell me which company manufactures it and where it can be purchased? Thanks for your help!

I was interested in something like that a few years ago, for the same reason. Unfortunately I think battery life is the issue. They'd wear out within just a few days of use.

While travelling On NorthWest Airlines to Florida, I was going through the Skymall catalogue and came across a battery operated picture light!

You can find it at:

It sells for 59$ US

You might want to check out this site: http://www.fineartlight.com/ and click on the "cordless" page. Not a good review of the battery systems.
