Henley River & RowingMuseum


The new Piper exhibition at the Henley River & Rowing museum examines the diversity of Piper’s career from Modernism to Romanticism.

Piper’s extraordinary diversity of work covered painting, collage, drawing, stained glass, ceramics, tapestry, set design and textiles.

The exhibition features unseen work from private collections from around the country, as well as a continually evolving display of loans from galleries such as the Tate, V&A and the Arts Council.  

A great friend of John Betjeman they could be seen cycling through the Chilterns - writing, sketching and getting inspiration from the countryside, towns and villages.
