Vicker’s inspiration, aside from European Modernism, was the Arts & Crafts Movement, which also informed the subway’s architectural embellishments that he was responsible for: their flattened designs often incorporated tiles by such makers as Grueby and Rookwood. Further, the patterned roof tiles of his Arts & Crafts home recall those found in his fantasy landscapes like this.
