Roussel's "Album of Landscapes" reveals the extreme subtlety of his approach. André Mellerio, a proponent of color lithography in the 1890s, praised the artist's "delicate understanding of tones" and his "very personal way of using a fresh range of colors." The complete album, published by Ambroise Vollard, comprises twelve color lithographs.
