Louise Goode was born in Manchester in 1843. At the age of 17 she married Frank Romer, who in 1865 was appointed private secretary to Baron Rothschild in Paris. The Baroness discovered her talent for drawing and advised her to take lessons with M. Charles Chaplin which she did. In 1867-8 she exhibited two small red chalk drawings of heads at the Salon.
In 1869 her husband lost his appointment and died in 1873.
In 1874 she married Joseph Middleton Jopling a watercolour painter who was a pupil of Chaplin & Alfred Stevens in Paris.
Louise went on to paint portraits, genre and landscapes and exhibited her work as Romer from 1870 -3 at the Royal Academy and as Jopling from 1874 onwards at the Royal Academy, Society of British Artists; New Watercolour Society and 32 paintings at the Grosvenor Gallery.
She was the first woman to be elected RBA.
Her work was also shown in Philadelphia in 1876 and at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1878.
Her portrait of Samuel Smiles is in the National Portrait Gallery.
A list of her best known pictures is given in Clayton, they are mainly portraits.
