From August to September 1960, Piper visited Brittany and on the return to his studio at Fawley Bottom in Henley-on-Thames, produced a series of large collages that reflected his renewed interest in abstraction and in particular his pre-war collage technique. Using a wax resist over which he applied watercolour and cut out marbled paper, these works form a 'distinct group in format and technique' (David Fraser Jenkins).
