The art and life of Louise Jopling (1843-1933) is unusually well documented for a 19th century female artist through her private papers,public pronouncements on art matters and through the press. She also wrote a glossy, opinionated memoir, 'Twenty Years of My Life 1867-1887' that was published towards the end of her life. This paper asked who was the 'real' Louise Jopling and highlighted a range of methodological issues encountered in pursuit of this question. How might the research help facilitate work on other neglected 19th century artists, especially women?
