John Piper
John Piper
English , 1903 - 1992
Stay up to date with this artist
John 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.
About the work
About the Work

Piper arrived in Coventry the morning after the air raid of 14 November 1940 that resulted in 1000 casualties and the destruction of the medieval Coventry Cathedral. He made drawings of the Cathedral, still on fire when he arrived, which he subsequently worked up into two oil paintings in his studio, Interior of Coventry Cathedral, now exhibited at the Herbert Art Gallery, described by Jeffery Daniels in The Times as "all the more poignant for the exclusion of a human element" and Coventry Cathedral, now exhibited at Manchester Art Gallery. During Piper's lifetime, prints were often made of his paintings using the screenprinting process. The prints offered here are handmade by master printmakers using the same traditional techniques, each of the 20 colours being applied seperately through screens. Piper showed great generosity towards cathedrals and churches. We hope that in offering these prints we can help his contribution to endure. 75 years after the Coventry blitz, we hope that these two new limited edition Piper screenprints will raise £100,000 for Coventry Cathedral. £200 from the sale of each of these prints will be donated to the Cathedral.

Price shown is for an unframed print.

There is no other gallery like Goldmark. I'm always amazed at both the stock they hold and their ability to regularly source really quite special pieces of art. That, with their friendly, knowledgeable & utterly unpretentious style makes them a delight to visit & to buy from.

Their delivery service is 100% reliable and the breadth of work displayed on their website pretty amazing. Above all, unlike other such dealers, I have never been under any pressure to buy. I recommend you give them a try.

We first visited Goldmark approximately 6 years ago and immediately liked the informality compared to previous gallery experiences. It’s a great place to start or build on your collection. Everyone at Goldmark is very friendly, knowledgeable and will give you as much or as little time as you wish.

We have bought prints and pots from Goldmark over many years and our house is the richer for the collections we have built up. The framing and delivery service are faultless.

Their exhibitions are always prepared with great care, with videos and catalogs accompanying the shows. I have not been able to visit the gallery in person but all the Goldmark team is splendid and highly professional, which makes the virtual shopping a great experience.
