I'm reading O Henry's "An Unfinished Story." I don't understand two parts in this paragraph below. Against the wrinkly mirror stood pictures of General Kitchener, William Muldoon, the Duchess of Marlborough, and Benvenuto Cellini. Against one wall was a plaster of Paris plaque of an O'Callahan in a Roman helmet. Near it was a violent oleograph of a lemon-coloured child assaulting an inflammatory butterfly. This was Dulcie's final judgment in art; but it had never been upset. Her rest had never been disturbed by whispers of stolen copes; no critic had elevated his eyebrows at her infantile entomologist. 1 << Deleted by moderator. One topic per thread please. >> 2 What is the meaning of "Her rest had never been disturbed by whispers of stolen copes"? I got to find copes means long capes. However, the sentence doesn't make any sense to me, though I guess it may mean nobody criticizes her taste for pictures. ... but I'm not sure. Help me, please.
