John Piper: The Gyselynck Collection

An exhibition of more than 30 paintings by the British artist John Piper (1903-1992) drawn from the collection of the late Michael Gyselynck, who lived in Lower Shiplake near Henley-on-Thames. This is the first time the paintings have been displayed in public. Exhibits include 'Composition' (1932), one of the few pure abstracts by Piper, painted during a period when he was experimenting with abstraction, influenced by the likes of Braque and Picasso, and 'Autumn Flowers' (1987), a more expressive work made towards the end of Piper's life when he could no longer travel far and often painted flowers from his garden at Fawley Bottom, near Henley.
