Nature’s Palette by Patrick Baty

16 November 2021

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 shared 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.

The Paint Detective – an evening with Patrick Baty

Tuesday 16 March 2021, 7pm

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 fascinating online talk, Patrick explained how he combines the skills of an historian, detective and analyst to uncover the stories of historic buildings, using a number of projects that he has completed in the Richmond area, including The King’s Observatory.


The Museum reopened for pre-booked visits on Thursday 3 December! You can check our availability and book a slot for your visit online:


Unfortunately, the lift in our building is currently out of order, so there is no step-free access to the Museum at the moment. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please note that face coverings are mandatory in museums so we will require visitors over the age of 11 to wear a face covering during their visit. This will not apply to those with exemptions.

The only public toilet is open Monday-Friday and is accessed from outside the building so it may be easiest to access this at the start or end of your visit.

You can read our COVID-19 risk assessment for more information on the steps we are taking to make your visit as safe as possible. We also recommend you read our ‘What to Expect on Your Visit’ document, which outlines how your visit will run and some aspects that will be different from previous visits to the Museum.

We can’t wait to welcome you back to the Museum of Richmond.
