30th May: John Piper 1903-1992. Fine Art Society

The exhibition was showcased from the 30th May 2012- 22nd June 2012.

John Piper, Cotterstock Church, 1940

John Piper 1903-1992 presented an exhibition of  works that brought together paintings and watercolours from all periods of his career, and included an abstract and a figurative painting from the 1930s, a group of works made during the war, and some very fine examples of Piper’s skill as a printmaker with a set of hand-coloured Brighton aquatints and his nursery prints.

The exhibition catalogue was written by the leading Piper scholar, David Fraser Jenkins, who has curated the major appraisals of Piper’s art, including the lifetime retrospective exhibition held at the Tate Gallery in 1983 and  exhibitions devoted to Piper’s work of the 1930s and 1940s held at the Imperial War Museum and Dulwich Picture Gallery respectively.
