Through over 80 works, this major exhibition is the first to focus on John Piper’s textile designs, exploring key motifs in the artist’s work.


Shown alongside related paintings and other studies the exhibition demonstrates how Piper’s designs were intricately connected with his wider work.


John Piper was one of the leading Modern British artists of the 20thcentury, best known for his paintings of Britain’s romantic heritage including churches, country houses and wartime ruins. In the post-war period Piper was also noted for his work as an accomplished designer of theatre sets, stained glass windows, and textiles.
