Maple Street by Walter Richard Sickert

All the characters of this work, down to the differentiation between sky, artificial light, window surface and brick wall are achieved by means of parallel vertical lines, with only a breaking of the line in the sky and a light cross hatching in the brick, ,to vary the method.
