John Piper Prints for Sale

John Egerton Christmas Piper (1903-1992) was born in Epsom, Surrey. Piper showed a keenness for art at an early age and a particular interest in landscape and architecture. On leaving school his desire to be a painter was hampered by an obligation to work as a clerk at his father's firm of solicitors. Following his father's death in 1926 he was free to follow his vocation. He entered the Richmond School of Art and a year later the Royal College of Art. The early 1930's saw him forming friendships with such artists as Henry Moore, Ivon Hitchens, Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth and Paul Nash. He exhibited regularly with the London Group. As well as his huge output of abstract work he is also best remembered for his paintings of churches, castles and stately homes.
