The subject is the village of Lawrenny in Pembrokeshire; the parish church of St Caradoc, with its ‘elegant square embattled tower’, can be seen to the left of centre. Piper was a frequent visitor to Wales, before, during and after the war; he and his wife Myfanwy had a traditional Welsh cottage near Fishguard. In the late 1950s (when this painting was executed) Piper was designing stained glass windows for Coventry Cathedral and Oundle College, a technique which may be reflected in the enclosed ‘compartments’ and strong verticals of this composition. In 2014 a major collection of Piper’s Welsh pictures was acquired by the National Museum of Wales.
