Museum Lighting

Museum Lighting

"The light so necessary for the viewing of works of art and museum objects can induce chemical reactions which cause deterioration of those objects as evidenced by the fading of dyes and pigments and the embrittlement of paper and textiles. The purpose of this bulletin is to enable museum and gallery staff to become more aware of problems associated with museum lighting and of techniques for minimizing deterioration that may be caused by it"--Abstract, p. 1.
