Stained Glass of Buckinghamshire Churches


Windows by John Piper - Artist

John Piper, 1903 - 1992, painter, printmaker and designer of stained-glass windows and theatre sets. From 1950 Piper began working in stained glass in partnership with Patrick Reyntiens, whom he had met through John Betjeman. Their first completed commission, for the chapel at Oundle School, led to Basil Spence commissioning them to design the stained-glass Baptistry window for the new Coventry Cathedral. They produced an abstract design that occupies the full height of the bowed baptistery, and comprises 195 panes, ranging from white to deep blue. John Piper and Patrick Reyntiens went on to design large stained glass windows for the Chapel of Robinson College, Cambridge, and Washington National Cathedral, as well as windows for many smaller churches.
