An exhibition now on at Reading Museum called A Sense of Place displays the Museum's best twentieth century landscapes alongside poetry and objects inspired by the paintings. I particularly wanted to see the two huge tapestries by John Piper which have recently been restored.
During 2015 I made several trips to see John Piper's stained glass windows, here's a couple of links to my posts.
Piper was given the freedom of the Borough of Reading in 1984 and was a founding member of Reading Foundation for Art, a charity set up in 1974 to acquire works of art for the Reading Museum Service and to build up the Museum's collection.
|Here we see Rural Reading, with fritillaries in the foreground.|
|This is Urban Reading, I recognise the chequered pattern from the church in the Town Centre.|
I'm linking this post to Coastal Ripples' Paint Monthly link-up.
Bye for now.
