Museums Warned About Using LED Bulbs and LED Lighting

Museums are warned to reconsider the use of LED Lighting


Museums should proceed with caution when using LED lighting near paintings to prevent certain colors from further fading away. Recent testing shows that some of the  key works tested began changing bright-yellow color due to exposure to energy efficient LED lighting installed in museums worldwide. Samples of 14 works dated from 1887 and 1890 were tested for the reaction which affects an oil painting color that is know as Chrome-Yellow. According to the experts the bright-yellow pigment becomes unstable under LED lighting and over time turns a shade of brownish green. Scientists in Europe reportedly using x-ray technology analyzed the bright-yellow tones in key works from Van Gogh, Cezanne and Gaugin. They are asking museums to reconsider the use of LED lighting.

LED lighting, so far on the surface, seems to be an energy efficient replacement for some traditional lighting , but since LED light bulbs and LED Lighting have only been in limited use in general lighting for 2 years or so, there is no collection of historical data on the long term performance, environment, health, or other affects (if any)  from the use of LED bulbs and LED lighting. Lighting applications or installation areas in the future may ultimately be deemed unsuitable for the use of LED lighting if specific negative impacts are discovered as the use of LED lighting in general lighting areas increases.
