Publisher's description: A major artist of the twentieth century, John Piper (1903-92) was a pioneer of modern abstract art in Britain during the 1930s. Piper captured some of the most iconic moments of his time through his art, never letting himself be penned in by a single mode or method of expression. He painted the ruins of the Blitz in Coventry, London, and Bath; the beauty and loneliness of the summits and panoramas of Snowdonia; as well as quaint rural churches around Britain. He was also the designer of nine of the first productions of the operas and a ballet by Benjamin Britten, and a pioneer of lithography, screenprinting, and the use of color in ceramics. Finally, he was the designer of stained glass for the great cathedrals and churches of Coventry, Eton College, and Plymouth. The first published survey of the whole of John Piper's art throughout his long life, this volume offers a full account of his artistic ouevre with over three hundred beautiful images and supporting text written by two leading experts on Piper.
