The State of Architectural Paint Research Today, A Conversation between Helen Hughes and Peter Riddington

Thursday 27th September  2018 @ Donald Insall Associates London office

This is a discussion for everyone involved in Architectural Paint Research; practitioners, local authorities, heritage bodies, conservation architects, and private clients. The discipline is now an accepted part of the planning process, but it is beset by problems; a lack of agreed standards, little training for practitioners, misunderstanding of the discipline by planning officers, imprecise briefs. How do we improve matters?’

Evening Lecture by Patrick Baty,  Paint Detective

22 March 2018 @ Donald Insall Associates London office

We had a fascinating evening lecture by Patrick Baty on 22 March. Patrick explained why several people have referred to him as ‘The Paint Detective’. Amongst notable examples, Patrick spoke of a house, with discreet Royal connections, where he could prove that a pair of doors had come from a long-demolished building, hundreds of miles away. He also provided an update on work at Stowe and described the finding of a hidden mural in the Chelsea house owned by the painter James Abbott McNeill Whistler.
