Vintage Mid Century Retro Framed Print Of Dorchester Abbey After John Piper.
Dorchester Abbey was a favourite of John Piper’s (1903-1992). A founding member of The Friends of Dorchester Abbey, he donated the watercolour (right) for sale as prints for fundraising. His lifelong fascination with church buildings began young: in his teens he produced sketches and a guidebook to the churches in his home county, Surrey; his love affair with stained glass began aged ten. On a visit to France, in Notre Dame (or Chartres) he experienced the “thrilling shock” of “light coming through a maze of richly coloured glass, in general darkness”.
It is a over varnished print
The frame is typical of this era and measures approx 87.5 x 66 cm
