Jopling 1925 Quote:  
Other Quotations:'Under a huge umbrella tend, brush and palette in hand, her graceful figure draped in studio attire half hidden by a spreading summer hat, is Louise Jopling, at that time Mrs Romer, painting an outdoor picture of the peep through an ivied wall. The grouping of the picture includes poultry, as well as some of the children of Ellis Williams. A well-fed fowl has been sacrificed to art. Its neck has been wrung, and it is now an object of very still life indeed, although apparently feeding out of a trough in the foreground of the group.’
