Piper’s overriding fascination was vernacular and ecclesiastical architecture - Abbeys, churches, houses, castles and details of architectural design were frequent subjects for his work.
He travelled far around Britain and Europe working with quick control to produce richly textured images with romantic combinations of colour and calligraphic lines.
Piper had strong associations with East Anglia and Aldeburgh, where a fond friendship with Benjamin Britten lead him to design almost all of Britten’s stage sets.
