Would this work as a print viewing lamp?

I would use a Solux Black Back bulb 3500K.

Not sure about 35 or 50 watt nor about beamspread ?

Maximum print size would generally be 17x22.

At 19 inches, the beam spread will not be sufficient to illuminate a 17x22 inch print. It will be suitable for a 8x10 inch print. In general, Solux lamps are best suited to track fittings, as you need a distance of about 4ft to get sufficient beam spread. I use three Solux lamps, on a track, with diffusers, to illuminate a 17x22 inch print.
