Special notice

Artist's Resale Right ("Droit de Suite"). Artist's Resale Right Regulations 2006 apply to this lot, the buyer agrees to pay us an amount equal to the resale royalty provided for in those Regulations, and we undertake to the buyer to pay such amount to the artist's collection agent.

Lot Essay

The present lot is possibly a preparatory sketch for part of the design for the High Altar Tapestry in Chichester Cathedral. John Piper received the commission to design the tapestry in 1964, which corresponds with the date of this work.

We are very grateful to Rev. Dr Stephen Laird for his assistance in preparing this catalogue entry.
