About the Artist

(1903-1992)"This British painter worked in watercolor, gouache and oil paint. He produced landscapes, urban landscapes as well as architectural views and seascapes. Piper also created designs for tapestries, stained glass, mosaics and for stage sets.

Richmond School of Art, the Royal College of Art and the Slade School of Fine Art in London all helped form this marvelous man's art talent between 1925 and 1930. On a visit to Paris in 1933, where he became more absorbed in the abstract movement led by artists such as Ben Nicholson and Barbara Hepworth, Piper also met Helion, Braque, Leger, Arp and Brancusi.

He became a member of the London Group and also of the 7 & 5 Society, the members of which included Ben Nicholson, Henry Moore, Ivon Hitchens, Frances Hodgkins, Barbara Hepworth and Winifred Nicholson."
