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 talk highlighting his book, Nature's Palette, Baty shares how his work helped to develop this technicolour trove building on Patrick Syme's edition of Werner's Nomenclature of Colours which attempted to establish a universal colour reference system to help identify, classify and represent species from the natural world for the first time back in 1841.
