This paper examined the context of Jopling’s art school for women (which ran from 1887-c.1914) and the extent to which this enterprise put into practice not only some of her ideas about art, but about female agency, particularly in relation to women’s employment and pursuit of intellectual fulfilment. It also analysed how her art school functioned within a larger web of her extensive social connections and spheres of influence, how its studio space became a locus for a number of organisations and networks promoting women’s participation in public life (e.g., the Women’s Local Government Society) and self-improvement.
