John Piper (1903-1992) was a major contributor to the artistic and cultural landscape of twentieth century Britain. Through landscape paintings and collages, photographs, abstracts, theatre designs and relief constructions, Piper expressed a sensitivity to the physical characteristics and atmosphere of his native land.
In this, the first major exhibition of John Piper’s work since 2003, is presented a selection of works including images of rural Britain, depictions of bombed-out churches made during World War Two and romantic landscape paintings.
