Or Piranesi: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Piranesi9c.jpg

There's very interesting background in Joseph Harriss' "The Tallest Tower", with plenty of preview at Google Books ( http://tinyurl.com/mhbnt5 )

Ray: yes ob both counts, I can see both artists in there a little. The confusion of the jumble reminds me of the fineness and ordered chaos of Escher; and the general darkness and forboding of Piranesi.
