From cathedrals to churches, cottages to coastlines we are never very far from a place John Piper has painted, written about or undertaken a commission for.
From cathedrals to churches, cottages to coastlines we are never very far from a place John Piper has painted, written about or undertaken a commission for. One of the most versatile British artists of the twentieth century - painter, designer, stained glass artist, photographer and writer on the arts - a man of many parts, truly a master of diversity.
For most of his adult life John Piper lived at Fawley Bottom, near Henley. Recently a permanent exhibition celebrating his work has been established at the River and Rowing Museum in Henley.
