Clearly, I was referring to prints.

If that is the case, what Michael Fryd said is correct and you don't need to worry about the lighting, within reason.

The exception to that Is if the print has its own light directed just at the image. In that case, the colours may appear wrong if the colour of the light shining on the print is different from the ambient lighting of the surroundings.

If you don't believe that the human eye & brain automatically adjust white balance, have a look at this optical illusion that was doing the rounds a year or two ago.

I fully understand that human eye sets its own white balance.   But at 64 years old, I have also experienced situations where certain lighting conditions do taint the eye's capacity to adjust, especially where certain relativities of adjacent colors are important.

"If you are among those who believe that it has all been done already and nothing new can be achieved, you've murdered your own artistry before ever letting it live. You abort it in its fetal state. There is much that has yet to be spoken in art and composition and it grows with the passage of time. Evolving technologies, world environments and ideologies all drive change in thoughts, passion and expression. There is no way that it can all ever be done already. And therein lies the venue for the creative artist, a venue that is as diverse as the universe is unmapped and unexplored." - Quote from FlyingLentris
