Bibliography

Reviews:The Graphic?, 1875, Jopling PC bk1, 2383.jpg  
Jopling 1925 Quote:  
Other Quotations:'Mrs. Jopling's "Pretty Crocus," a lady, in grey velvet robe of picturesque cut, carrying a yellow paroquet; her "Interrupted," a pretty young matron in frock and ample white muslin peignor, looking up from her pleasant lounge over a book at an intruder, whether welcome or otherwise the critic may occupy himself in deciding; "Very Suspicious," a jealous young woman hiding behind a screen; "For Bread," a London winter scene, with a beggar and her child shivering in the cold - are all good in their several ways. Three of them are such boudoir-bits of comedy or domestic drama as we are apt to think that French painters alone have the secret of, and for which Mrs. Jopling may be partly indebted to her French teaching, the other a painful study from the real winter world of snow and suffering which lies at London doors.' (PC k 1, ?, October 30, 1875, 2383) 'Mrs. Jopling draws on a pleasant reminiscence of her French teaching, in her graceful treatment of little boudoir subjects, in particular a handsome lady in gray caressing a yellow paroquet, and a pretty student in pouff and peignor, looking up from her novel at the entrance of a visitor' (PC bk 1, ?, undated, 2383)
