Bibliography

Reviews:Jopling PC bk 1  
Jopling 1925 Quote:'At the Suffolk Street Galleries I sent a life-sized head that I had painted from a pretty model. I had just been reading a charming novel written by John Saunders, the heroine in which was called “Hirell.” I christened my picture after it. It was seen there by the author, who wrote to me, saying that my presentment of his heroine was exactly like the one he had in his mind, when he wrote his book, and might he call?'  
Other Quotations:'A very sweetly idealised and powerfully handled subject, of the class which may be defined, not inaptly, as fancy portraiture, is Miss L. Romer's (281) "Hirell." PC 1-undated cutting
