    An illustration in his 'Figure drawing', London: Faber and Faber, 1940, p.211, illus. 280

    Accompanying text reads ...
    "Linear textures are observable in Diagram 280, in the hair, the features of the foreshortened mask, the fingernails, and in the indications of inserted forms and surface accents of the dimpled elbows. Sections were essential to the expression of the supporting wrists, fingers, waist, buttock, thigh and left heel."
