In 1891 Roussel moved to Parsons Green, Fulham and his continued to paint aesthetic landscapes and portraits as well as producing many excellent etchings. Roussel died in St Leonards on Sea in 1926 and a Memorial Exhibition of his work was held in the following year at Goupil Gallery, London. More than 30 of his pictures were included in the “London Impressionists” exhibition at the Michael Parkin Gallery, London in 1975. Examples of his work are in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum, Tate Gallery and other public collections.
Executed 1889-90, this etching is also known as Laburnums and Battersea, Corner of the New Bridge White in Construction. The pile of sand in the foreground is presumably for the work on the construction of new Battersea Bridge, the old bridge having been demolished in 1879. Versions are in the collection of the British Museum, London and Museum of Modern Art, New York.
