792 Sold Rare Mildred Anne Butler - Original Drawing for Childrens Book - Watercolour

 This Painting by Mildred A Butler (1858-1941) is an original that Mildred did for a childrens book and it wonderfully framed with the original writing from Mildred giving the description of the image. The Kilkenny born artist, who studied at the Westminster School of Art and with Frank Calderon the animal painter, visited Newlyn in Cornwall where she came under the influence of Norman Garstin who was personally acquainted with the French Impressionists. These same influences are evident in her mature work after 1910. My Gallery over the years has sold many of Mildred A Butler most beautiful painting's but this small little watercolour is superb and described by an expert on Butler as 'a rare thing'.
