DAVID GENTLEMAN and JOHN PIPER
Pamphlet for the Christie's Contemporary Art National Trust Collection signed by English artists David Gentleman and John Piper. Extremely rare!
Pamphlet signed: "David Gentleman", "John Piper", in black ink, 7½x8¼ open flat, 4x8¼. DAVID GENTLEMAN (b. 1930) is an English artist, creating in a wide variety of mediums including water color, lithography, and wood engraving. Studying at the Royal College of Art, Gentleman's work has appeared largely in print, in books and magazines. Many of his wood engravings were used in Penguin paperbacks and stamps, which is his most recognized work. In 1978, Gentleman was commissioned to paint a platform length Eleanor Cross mural on the London Underground. Also an author, Gentleman wrote and illustrated several travel books. JOHN PIPER (1903-1992) was a painter and printmaker, first gaining interest in art as a child after making illustrated guidebooks for himself. After a failed career in law, Piper trained at the Royal College of Art, eventually becoming an official artist in World War II. One of his first war paintings was produced after the destruction of Coventry Cathedral. The painting, "Interior of Coventry Cathedral", was hailed for its poignant depiction of war and was dubbed "Britain's Guernica". Later in his career, Piper specialized in stained glass, coincidentally creating the new stained glass windows for the redesigned Coventry Cathedral. Corners and edges lightly worn. Slight surface creases. Piper's signature slightly smeared, but clearly legible. Otherwise, fine condition.
