Born in Surrey in 1903, John Piper was a painter, printmaker, draughtsman, designer, and writer. From 1928 to 1933 he wrote as an art critic for ‘the Listener’ and ‘the Nation’ and was among the first to recognise such contemporaries as William Coldstream and Victor Pasmore.

Piper’s work often focused on the British landscape, especially churches and monuments, and included tapestry designs, book jackets, screen-prints, photography, fabrics and ceramics. He turned from abstraction early in his career, concentrating on a more naturalistic but distinctive approach, often working in varying styles throughout his career. He was an official war artist in WWII and his depictions of bomb damaged churches and landmarks, most notably Coventry Cathedral, made Piper a household name.
