Linocut (1929).
 
Printed from five blocks: yellow; cobalt blue and black, this print is based on some sketches that power made in 1927 of the staircase at Russell Square Underground Station in London. Power trained as an architect before studying at the Grosvenor School of Art and so here he explores with detail, both the architectonic boldness of the staircase, but also the reflected light as, in geometric symmetry, it alternately illuminates and casts shadows on the walls of the stairwell.
