Scotney Castle IV (Levinson 346) by the celebrated British artist John Piper is one of six signed etchings, published in 1982 in an edition of 50 portfolios of the same name (Scotney castle, Kent) by Kelpra Editions. This is an unsigned proof copy from the artist’s private collection. John Piper’s style is a unique combination of a romantic portrayal of English heritage and a commitment to the modern and abstract movements that were emerging while he was at art school. His style is dramatic and bold, combining rich passages of colour, calligraphic line and experimental textures with a unique freedom of expression.

The Artist

John Piper

English painter, set designer, printmaker and window designer John Egerton Christmas Piper was born in Surrey in 1903. Though his family wished him to become a lawyer, he rebelled and first studied at the Richmond School of Art. He later moved onto the Royal College of Art, London, though he did not actually graduate. Though he initially experimented with abstract art, he soon turned towards more natural themes. His main subjects were landscapes and religious buildings, such as churches. He created a range of work, including book jackets, photography, tapestries, fabrics and ceramics.
