Brief History

I specialise in Victorian Oils & Water Colors.


Dear Friend
"I could not believe the dire quality and poor design of lights over the last 20 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 20 years ago"

The DeBruyne came the closest to good illumination but still required the light to be set up by the manufacturer - The obvious solution was to design a light that can be adjusted by the client to fit their varied collection.

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

Please see my links page where you will find information relating to all aspects of Fine Art

  • Robert Hogarth, an art dealer, found himself unable to find a supplier of picture lights that would live up to his exacting standards. After over 2 years of research and development, the Hogarth Fine Art Picture Light was born.

  • Manufactured to the highest standards, the patented Hogarth Picture lights are used across the globe, and are acknowledged as the most effective method of close illumination of paintings, whether they be old masters or modern classics.

  • Made of solid brass in a period design with an accent on modern, the Hogarth Picture Light is available in many finishes and suits all periods of art and frames.

  • Hogarth Pictures Lights, were created from a passion for art. Indulge your passion.
