Notes by the artist: Mixed Styles: Regency - Victorian - Modern.

This view is drawn looking westwards along the promenade to Brunswick Terrace, at the point where Bedford Square opens out on to the front. The corner house is one of the Regency series that surrounded the square in pale grey-painted stucco, with characteristic pilasters, verandas and bows. Beyond it is an imposing Victorian building, and beyond that again the recently built block of flats known as Embassy Court, designed by Wells Coates. Each of these buildings, in design and materials, belongs very much to it's own age, and each is excellent of it's kind. The designs are, respectively, Pseudo-classical, florid, and modern-severe. The materials are, respectively, stucco, brick and cast iron, steel and glass and concrete.
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.
