Friday 26 April 2024 – The World of Sutherland and Piper

Lecturer: Val Woodgate

The careers of Graham Sutherland and John Piper followed surprisingly similar paths. Born in the same year, 1903, they both attended Epsom College, then commenced different careers before attending art college. Along with other English Neo-Romantics., each was influenced by William Blake and Samuel Palmer. Piper and Sutherland worked in a variety of media, producing astonishing bodies of work; each was an Official War Artist in the Second World War and each went on to create moving and inspirational works of religious art.
