Cross-hatching

The Morandi exhibition at the Estorick was instructive in the many different qualities of the hatching in his etchings. Here's a sample (please excuse the glare of the glass in some of them).

Lines, judiciously disposed - what could be simpler?

btw the exhibition is extended to 28 April.

I love the simplicity and the dramatic effect of cross hatching. I not only admire the Morandis, but also - very much - the cross hatch work in David Hockney's sets for The Rake's Progress.
