John Piper (1903-1992)

Westminster School II (1961)

42 x 59 cm

Signed lower right and numbered 86/100 lower left in pencil.

Piper’s second view of Westminster School; both views were commissioned by the school in 1981. Here he depicts Grant’s House, with College on the far left and Rigaud’s House on the right. The view is serene and silent, set against a night sky the colour of stone, mimicking the buildings below.
