An expert on the paint and colours of the past four centuries, Patrick Baty works with homeowners, estates, museums, public bodies and institutions, to reinstate interiors of the past, or to create a scheme sympathetic with the aims of a space and its current and future use.

In this online talk, Patrick explains how he combines the skills of an historian, detective and analyst to uncover the stories of historic buildings. This will be illustrated with a number of projects that he has completed in the Richmond area, including The King's Observatory.
