Bibliography

Reviews:  
Jopling 1925 Quote:As standing at my easel – a position I much prefer – tired me just then, I painted myself sitting down in front of a glass, and called it “Through the Looking-Glass.” Agnew bought it. Chapter X. LJ was expecting LMJ at the time.  
Other Quotations:'Painted from myself' (Grattan ts picture list)
