Mildred Ann Butler, Garden at Kilmurry
Mildred Ann Butler (1858-1941) was well known in her own lifetime as a successful watercolourist and oil painter. Renowned for her strong colours, unusual viewpoints and rendition of light and shade, many of her paintings draw the eye to somewhat mysterious, darker areas. She spent most of her life in her family home of Kilmurry, Thomastown, Co Kilkenny, documenting domestic scenes of her garden, farm and wider landscape. She exhibited regularly, most notably in the Royal Academy in London, of which she became a member in 1893. During her lifetime, her work was exhibited as far afield as Japan and the USA, and was collected by notable members of the Engliush aristocracy and royal family. Her work is part of collections of the Tate, National Gallery of Ireland, Hugh Lane Gallery, Crawford Gallery, as well as many other institutions.
