About this artwork

In this print Roussel recorded the noteworthy ironwork and Georgian doorway of a large house on Cheyne Walk, part of a row of distinguished homes that is still standing today. The novelist George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans) lived there in 1880, and the painter and poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti lived nearby from 1862 until shortly before his death in 1882.
