Reviews:  
Jopling 1925 Quote:'We took unfurnished apartments in Shrewsbury Road, Bayswater. The front drawing-room made me an excellent Studio. For a few short months we were very happy there. I, working on portraits I was lucky enough to get, and on my three-quarter life-sized canvas, destined, I hoped, for the Academy.'  
Other Quotations:'An aunt of Mrs Romers painted in oils & got £2.2 for it. Did it at [leaves space] Road Bayswater. An old lady about 70 dressed in black & white cap, nearly profile.' Grattan NB ADAP p.4). Diary 1869: 'Monday June 21 Mme Whitebrook est venue poser.[...] Jeudi Juin 24 – Mme Whitebrook est venue poser pour 2 heures. J’ai fini son portrait.'
