841 Sold Framed Pair Watercolours - Mildred Anne Butler 1858-1941

This is a delightful pair of framed Waterclours by Mildred Anne Butler RA RWS 1858-1941. Mildred Anne Butler resided at Kilmurray House in Kilkenny and this pair of watercolours depict scenes from Kilmurray. This pair of small paintings are framed within one frame which is fitting as we are sure that they were painted at the same time by Mildred as she relaxed in the superb location that is Kilmurray. Mildred Anne Butler was associated with The Newlyn school of Artists. Butler's father Henry may have encouraged her to paint in her youth but her artistic training began in London in the late 1880s with the watercolourist Paul Jacob Naftel, whom she credited for her understanding of watercolours. Butler like her friend Rose Barton, who also studied under Naftel, did not follow his choice of landscape, instead she devoted herself to cattle, birds, and flower gardens.
