In 1938 Piper visited Brighton, shortly after completing a course of lessons at the Royal College of Art in producing aquatints.

Inspired by the seaside and its architecture he wrote his first book 'Brighton Aquatints' published in 1939. Edition of 200, but now scarce.
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.
