JOPLING, Frederic Waistell (1860-1945). Born at Kensington, England, he came to Canada in 1874 and settled in Toronto, Ontario. In 1877 he entered the Ontario Society of Artists art school and studied under Lucius O'Brien and John Fraser until 1878. In 1880 he arrived in New York City where he studied at the Art Students' League under Walter Shirlaw, William Sartain and William Chase, until 1883. He remained in New York City for thirty-two years where he worked as an advertising artist for railway and steamship companies also on the staff of the New York Herald. He sold his work as well, to Harper's Weekly and Colliers. He later worked for several large photo engraving and printing houses in the United States including the American Bank Note Company. Returning to Canada in 1912 he settled in Toronto. Many years later Pearl McCarthy noted, "F.W. Jopling has spent a lifetime etching the romance of history and of scenes. Hundreds and hundreds of copper plates keep, in lasting form, this record of a world which the artist has found fascinating . . . . But Mr. Jopling, 82, is living a strong, artistic life now, as may be seen by visiting the Roberts Art Gallery on Grenville Street, where a large collection of his etchings is on view. He did an extensive series of pictures of the Royal tour last year, having been accorded special facilities for his work, and these etchings include Washington and the President's Hyde Park home as well as Canadian scenes. The outstanding point in his historical pieces is his ability to suggest the glamour in the fact. Because his catholic interest has taken in everything from the building of the Welland Canal to interior views of Osgoode Hall and views of life classes in a studio, there is a wealth of subject interest." Frederic Jopling died in Toronto at the age of eighty­ five.
