The careers of John Piper and Graham Sutherland followed surprisingly similar paths. Born in the same year – 1903 - they both attended Epsom College, then commenced different careers before attending art college. Along with other English Neo-Romantics, each was influenced by William Blake and Samuel Palmer. They were also able to embrace European modernism in a way that enabled their work to remain accessible to the general public. Piper and Sutherland worked in a variety of media, producing astonishing bodies of work; each was an Official War Artist in the Second World War, and each went on to create moving and inspirational works of religious art
