About this artwork

Roussel’s Scarab, Grecian Key, and Fly Pattern Mount was printed in different ink color combinations for five of his nine color prints. There were two variants for The Sea at Bognor, with the cartouche, or “scarab”—in opaque white or rose ink; it was printed in green and gold for Last Poppies, and a white and gold variation was used for a small landscape entitled The Thames, Evening. The mount was also produced in shades of red and gold for Chelsea Palaces and in black and gold for Anemonies. The latter is placed on a drawing for the mount with a black printed cartouche. The remaining color subjects were accompanied by Roussel’s Shell Pattern Mount, which was likewise printed in a variety of color combinations.
