David Fraser Jenkins first met John Piper (1903–1992) in 1978 and this magnificent study draws on their personal acquaintance as well as Jenkins’s long experience as a curator of the artist’s work. The book covers Piper’s life and every phase of his career, paying particular attention to architectural painting, stage design and stained glass. Meticulously detailed and illustrated with over 330 reproductions, the volume ends with a gazetteer of ten public commissions, including stained glass in Coventry, Chichester and Liverpool cathedrals.
