Bibliography

Reviews:Jopling PC bk1, 2 undated cuttings  
Jopling 1925 Quote:  
Other Quotations:'in the first room the painting which most attracts the visitor is that of a poor girl stretching out her hands to sell her flowers, by Louise Romer. The intense misery displayed in the features is very touching, and the toning of the colours is deserving of considerable praise' (PC bk1) 'very striking picture is Miss Louise Romer's mendicant- a well-dressed, most interesting supplicant selling flowers. The expression of solicitation is very powerfully painted' (PC bk1)
