Notes by the artist: Brunswick Terrace.

Brunswick Terrace and Brunswick Square, Hove, were designed by an architect named Wild, who did other work at Brighton, including the Royal Chapel of St George. his work is representative of the combined ebullience and restraint that one associates with seaside terraces of stucco houses. but Decimus Burton., architect (1800-81) was probably more responsible than anyone else for the Regency architectural character of south coast watering places. He is associated with Hastings and St Leonard's, as Foulston is with Plymouth and Papworth with Cheltenham. Burton designed the screens at Hyde park corner and the Athenaeum Club in Pall Mall. He was less busy at Brighton than at Hastings, but his style (as Professor Richardson has written) 'collectively conveyed something of the manner of the Regency to the seaside and there are reminiscences of it from Dover to Sidmouth'.
John Piper PortraitJohn Piper was born at Epsom in Surrey, 1903. Following his father’s wishes, he spent 5 years in the family law firm before pursuing art, firstly at Richmond School of Art and then at the Royal College of Art. In the 1930s Piper exhibited abstract pictures and constructions, then reverted to creating landscape and architectural images, developing the picturesque style that features in his later work.

Piper experimented with printmaking from as early as 1923 when he produced four wood engravings. Piper’s prints embody his love of Britain through their depiction of its art, architecture and topography. However frequently underpinning their design, as the artist Rigby Graham has indicated, are the elements of collage, construction and assemblage that featured in his modernist work of the early 1930s.
