John Piper (1903-1992)
English artist and designer. John Egerton Christmas Piper was influenced early in his career by pioneers of abstraction, such as Braque, who he met in 1927. In 1934 he became a member of the Seven and Five Society, exhibiting abstract constructions. His work became increasingly figurative in the period from 1936, when he first visited Wales. As a painter, he contributed to the Recording Britain scheme from 1940, working partly in Wales at locations from Cardiff to Blaenau Ffestiniog. His interest in the Welsh landscape persisted through the 1950s. Piper worked in a wide variety of media, and became particularly celebrated for his designs for stained glass at Coventry Cathedral and Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral. His ideas were interpreted in glass by Patrick Reyntiens
. He also designed for opera, and was a prolific printmaker.
