Re: Not allowed to use flash makes perfect sense!

Flash prohibition is a holdover from the days when photographers used flash bulbs. Now and then a flash bulb would explode which of course might be harmful to artwork and bystanders. Modern sealed strobe flashes, particularly those on camera, don't have this problem. Most art restorers and archivists agree that modern strobe flashes don't adversely affect artwork.

Curators are a very conservative bunch, as they probably should be.

Here's an interesting article from Imaging Resource on this, FWIW.
