Theodore Roussel (1847-1927), Chelsea Children, Chelsea Embankment, etching, 1889, signed in pencil on the tab and inscribed “imp” [also signed in the plate]. Reference: Hausberg 32, only state, from the total printing of about 30 impressions. Printed in a reddish brown ink on a thin laid paper. In very good condition, trimmed by the artist on the platemark except for the tab, 7 1/2 x 5 1/16 inches.

A fine impression, printed with a veil of plate tone, wiped a bit less toward the sky making the sky darker than the street scene.

Hausberg notes that this etching “depicts, in reverse, a stretch of Cheyne Walk between Chelsea Old Church and Oakley Street with the Albert Bridge seen in the background.”
