Somerset House

Patrick Baty has carried out a number of projects concerning paint and colour at Somerset House

The central block of the Neoclassical building Somerset House was designed by Sir William Chambers and dates from 1776–96. It was extended by classical Victorian wings to north and south.  I was asked to advise on the decoration of the offices of The Inland Revenue, which were housed in one of the later wings.

I have also carried out paint analysis on various elements including The Civil Service Rifles’ War Memorial and worked on the sculpture in one of the pediments.
