John Egerton Christmas Piper (1903 – 1992) was an English painter, printmaker and designer of stained-glass windows. His work often focused on the British landscape, especially churches and monuments He turned from abstraction early in his career, concentrating on a more naturalistic but distinctive approach, but often worked in several different styles throughout his career. His war-time depictions of bomb damaged churches, most notably those of Coventry Cathedral, are striking.
