This desolate urban view is a rare night scene by Sickert. It depicts an intersection near studios the artist rented from 1915 onward. About 1923, he repeated the composition in two prints, for one of which he borrowed the title of the popular song O Sole Mio, a humorous allusion to its illumination by streetlamp.
