Roussel, Theodore (1847-1926), 'A Study By Lamplight', Transfer Lithograph, 1890-1894.

It is thought that Whistler introduced Roussel to transfer lithography and the Ways, master printers. Roussel made a series of transfer lithographs, drawn on specially prepared paper and then transferred to the stone. This enabled the artist to avoid drawing directly onto a cumbersome lithographic stone. The prints were exhibited at Dowdswell’s in 1894. They are now very scarce.
