Lady Calne, Patsy, is wife of the artist Sir Roy Yorke Calne, FRS, a pioneering transplant surgeon who performed several of the first transplant operations in Europe and the world, including the first liver transplant operation in Europe in 1968 and the world's first liver, heart, and lung transplant in 1987. Professor of Surgery at Cambridge University, he met in 1988, as a liver transplant patient, the Scottish artist John Bellany who introduced him to a richer palette.
