‘Brighton Aquatints’ is Piper’s only fully realized example of an ‘artist’s book’. It was published in 1939 by Gerald Duckworth, and through its aquatints it celebrates some of Britain’s most iconic architecture: its Regency squares with their stuccoed and balconied houses; the Royal Pavilion in all its extravagance, and the filigree beauty of the West Pier. The filigree finery of this pleasure palace, built for George IV, is showcased to good effect in this print, highlighted, as it is, by dark skies and equally dark foreground. The building has become synonymous with Brighton – architectural icon of the city itself.
