WHY BUY ME?
John Piper (1923 – 1992) was one of the most versatile and interesting British artists of the 20th-century. Best known for his work during WWII, he was at the cutting edge of many elements of the British art scene. A friend of John Betjeman and contemporary of Henry Moore, Graham Sutherland, Paul Nash and Ben Nicholson. His work spanned paintings, prints, ceramics, stained glass, fabric design, theatrical set design and even the choreography for firework displays!
