The quality of lighting in galleries and museums is critical in the display of artwork. Lighting supports the appearance and message of traditional and modern artwork through warm and cool tones. Proper art lighting can also help direct attention to an artist's unique style by pointing to specific details.

These types of bulbs distort color perception as well whether they are set at the brightest setting or dimmed to protect the artwork from damage and reduce electricity consumption.
