Bibliography

Reviews:  
Jopling 1925 Quote:'Mr. Day, my lawyer, who proved the kindest of friends to me. He had a splendid head, rather like a Spanish hidalgo; or, more strictly perhaps, like my idea of one.' 'The portrait, when finished, was hung in his office, and it got me an order to paint some clients of his.' (Jopling, 1925, pp. 43, 273).
