Bibliography

Reviews:The Echo, March 1876, Jopling PC bk 1, 2385.jpg  
Jopling 1925 Quote:  
Other Quotations:‘Although Mrs. L. Jopling (late Mrs. Romer) has nothing this year to remind us of the racy yet graceful drollery displayed in her well-remembered “Five o’Clock Tea,” she has not failed to win golden opinions for (1250) an admirable portrait of Miss Constance de Rothschild, and for her two examples of “fancy” portraiture (149) “Alsace” and (896) “Lorraine.” Both, in point of expression, are full of the most genuine pathos, and they possess, besides qualities of a very high order as regards firmness in modelling, vigour in execution, and brilliance in colouring. It is to be hoped that Mrs. Jopling will next year give us something of a more ambitious nature. Few contemporary ladies surpass her in power, and none in grace’ (PC bk 1, The Echo, March, 1876, 2385) ‘Jopling’s very honest and solidly-painted portrait of Miss Constance de Rothschild (1,250), with the two graceful and expressive heads she has chosen to christen and costume as “Alsace” (149) and “Lorraine” (896)’ (PC bk 1, The Echo, March 1876, 2385) ‘Mrs. L. Jopling should have been praised among the female artists, for her “Lorraine” (896) is a very touching and pretty French country-girl, and so is her “Alsace” (149), a French nothing, by-the-bye. Her portrait, too, of Miss Constance de Rothschild (1,250) is unaffected and good’ (PC bk 1, The Echo June 3, 1867 [must mean 1876], 2385)
