When commenting on one of Rooke’s watercolours, Edward Burne-Jones is said to have remarked ‘more like a map than a picture’. Evidence of Burne-Jones’ comment can be seen in this drawing, where Rooke delights in a two-dimensional, patternmaking approach, painting individual tiles and bricks into the overall design.
