Joseph Middleton Jopling (1831-1884)
Artist of 2 portraits
The painter Joseph Jopling was the son of a clerk in the Horse Guards, and himself worked in the Adjutant-General's office before becoming an artist. He taught himself painting, exhibiting at the Royal Academy and especially the New Watercolour Society. He was much influenced by Rossetti and Burne-Jones, and was a friend of Millais. His work is rather overshadowed by that of his wife, Louise Jopling, whom he married in 1874.
