Portrait of the Week: John and Myfanwy Piper

Partly because I loved Frances Spalding's double biography but never got around to reviewing it and partly in anticipation of reading Alexandra Harris's Romantic Moderns; here are this fascinating twosome.


  1. Wonderful portrait. She has a really engaging smile.

  2. Lovely photograph: he's looking at her and she's looking at the camera. I too enjoyed Frances Spalding's biography and have just read Romantic Moderns, which I thought very good (except the bits on music, but they're a very small part of the book).

  3. I just finished her bio on Duncan Grant! I really want to read everything by her now.
