Organised by the Welsh Centre for The Prints of John Piper: A Catalogue Raisonné 1923-91 ed. by Orde Levinson, 232p, 428 col and 60 b&w ills, hbk £125 The essence behind Piper’s scintillatingly diverse oeuvre presented here is that for him as ‘a painter and draughtsman of landscape and architecture’, ‘the tradition . . . has to stretch . . . to include anything and everything that has a pointed reference to life’. Thus the prints here range from 1930s abstract compositions to theglowing, subtly painterly 1980s’ screenprints of ancient buildings that doubleas both acutely observed record and poignant palimpsest. Uppingham’s Goldmark Gallery , which launched both the book and special collectors' edition, has its own impressive permanent display of Piper’s prints. PV BOOK reviews
