Artist Biography

Mildred Anne Butler (1858-1941) – Mildred Anne Butler was born at Kilrnurry, a Georgian house near Thomastown in County Kilkenny, Ireland, where she was to live for most of her life. Her father, a captain in the army, had painted watercolours while in the tropics and although sketching was a common pursuit among country ladies, he probably encouraged her artistic inclinations. She travelled to Italy through France and Switzerland in 1885, studied in London the following year, and in the early 1890s became a pupil of the animal painter, WiIliam Calderon. Her friendship with Stanhope Forbes, the most successful of the Newlyn School artists in Cornwall, led to Mildred working in Newlyn herself during the summers of 1894 and 1895, where she received tuition from Norman Garstin, an Irish artist who was associated with the colony for some time. Through him she probably learned about Impressionism and the benefits of working out-of-doors, directly from the subject, though her own outdoor studies were often annotated and completed in the studio. Although she painted a few oils in Newlyn, Mildred evidently preferred watercolour and perfected her style in that medium during the 1890s. In 1897 the Atheneaum praised her ability to ‘make good pictures out of simple and indeed trivial material’, most of this material being taken from the local countryside, fields and farmyards, her holidays on the coast at Tramore in County Waterford,
