Bibliography

Reviews:  
Jopling 1925 Quote:'I was busy, when Frith came, on a picture of two girls, which I called “Consolation.” When it was finished, I bravely sent it up to the forthcoming R.A. Exhibition. It was neither accepted nor rejected. It was in the “Doubtful” class.' … 'My picture was eventually not hung. I had well named it, for “consolation” came to me, by some kind friends getting up a raffle, and handing me a cheque for £42, which proved a welcome addition to the scanty contents of my purse.'  
Other Quotations:'Painted from Nina Frances [?] & Mary Cockell. Two figures, one having received bad news, being consoled by the other. Girls dressed one in [illeg], the other in mauve, one dark, & the other fair. Painted in Greville Place. Background at Mr Browns [illeg] Road, Kilburn. Sent to Royal Academy marked doubtful & not hung. [illeg] for £42 and won by Mr Hutchings of Hutchings & Romer. Shown to J [sic] Frith Esq RA' (Grattan NB ADAP p.3)
