Please help us give John Piper's work the home and recognition it deserves.
Piper (1902-1992) was a prolific English polymath; a major contributor to the artistic landscape of 20th-century Britain. He worked across an extraordinary range of artistic and cultural fields – he was painter, printmaker and a designer of stained-glass windows and theatre sets. He collaborated with poets, choreographers, ceramicists and composers, including John Betjeman, Benjamin Britten and John Cranko.
Piper spent much of his working life at his farmhouse on the edge of Henley, where he built a pottery and a studio large enough to create full-sized designs for stained-glass windows. With your help, we will bring together a collection of this important artist’s work, celebrating his diverse creative output in a new permanent home. The new gallery will give art lovers the opportunity to view works from collections across the country, and explore the connections between Piper and iconic modern British artists including Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and Ben Nicholson.
Your help will enable us to bring John Piper's work home, to celebrate his work in the landscape that inspired him and to create his first publicly accessible collection. In return, you will receive a beautiful reward inspired by Piper's work.
Help us to make it happen!
