John Piper

John Piper (1903 – 1992) was a 20th-century English painter. For much of his life he lived at Fawley Bottom in Buckinghamshire, near Henley-on-Thames. Piper was appointed an official war artist in World War II from 1940-1942. The morning after the air raid that destroyed Coventry Cathedral, Piper produced his first painting of bomb damage, Interior of Coventry Cathedral now exhibited at the Herbert Art Gallery. It has been described as "Britain's Guernica".
