Painting in Coloured Light at the River & Rowing Museum

River & Rowing Museum, Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire, RG9 1BF
The John Piper Gallery

About

A remarkable new display, Painting in Coloured Light: The modern stained glass designs of John Piper, signals the reopening of the Museum’s nationally significant John Piper Gallery. This new introduction to the gallery shines a spotlight on Piper’s lifelong passion for stained glass. The centrepiece of the new display, recently beautifully conserved and rarely seen in public before, is Piper’s vibrant ‘cartoon’ or design for the stunning stained glass window, which he was invited to create (c. 1985 – 1986) for All Saints Church, Farnborough, West Berkshire, in memory of his close friend and collaborator Sir John Betjeman.
