Bibliography

Reviews:  
Jopling 1925 Quote:'A man and his wife, and their little child. They were all charming subjects. He, a very handsome man, and she, a striking-looking woman. I was invited down to their country-house, in Wiltshire, to paint their portraits there. It was the first time that I had painted in a stranger’s house, and I felt inwardly very shy. I painted the wife and the boy first, and then returned to town, and went down later to paint the husband’s portrait'
