Brief Biography-Mildred Anne Butler was from Thomaston, Kilkenny, Ireland. She studied in Brussels, Paris and London. Her first significant exhibitions were at the Royal Society of Painters in watercolours, and she was made an associate member in 1896. She spent time painting in Cornwall and became linked with the Newlyn School art colony.
In Ireland, she exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Academy and became a member of the Ulster Academy of Arts in 1930. In 1937, she was made a full member of the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolours. In her home county of Kilkenny, the Museum of Art was renamed the Butler Gallery as a tribute to her work.

Kilkenny Castle, Ireland
The original Anglo-Norman stone castle was built for William Marshal, 4th Earl of Pembroke (c.1146-1219) during the first decade of the thirteenth century. Kilkenny Castle later became the principal Irish residence of the powerful Butler family for almost 600 years. The Butler ownership began when James (c.1360-1405), 3rd Earl of Ormond, purchased the castle in c.1391, and lasted until 1967 when Arthur, 6th Marquess of Ormonde (1893-1971), presented it to the people of Kilkenny in return for a token payment of £50. - (visitkilkenny.ie)

Ormonde Castle, Carrick-on-Suir, Co.Tipperary, Ireland
Sometime after 1565, Thomas Butler, 3rd Earl of Ormonde, (referred to sometimes as the 10th Earl of Ormonde) spent many years at the court of his cousin, through Anne Boleyn, Queen Elizabeth I. He carried from England a regard for Elizabethan-style architecture, and added a Tudor manor house to the property, the first of its kind in Ireland.
In the 17th century the house was a favourite residence for James Butler, the 'Great Duke of Ormonde,' but the Butlers abandoned the home after James' death in 1688. The home remained a possession of the family until the middle of the 20th century. In 1947 the house was given over to state agencies who restored the historic structures.
The manor house is enhanced by the mullioned windows on both floors to the front and the oriel windows of the porch in the centre of the facade. The gallery on the first floor features two carved stone chimney pieces and a ceiling and frieze of Elizabethan plaster-work.
The U-shape of the manor house surrounds a small courtyard that abuts the north of the castle's bawn. The manor has two floors and a gabled attic.
The most notable restoration achievement was that of the long gallery on the first floor of the facade, where the ceiling had largely collapsed. This room, once hung with tapestries, has a magnificent limestone fireplace bearing the date 1565, and has stucco representations of Queen Elizabeth flanked by Equity and Justice. It is said that she had promised her cousin that she would one day visit.

Hello. She came here for holidays, for a week for arts festival in Kilkenny.
Yeah, we have our time at night. Its the best time.
It must be a dying art, is it, silver making.
No, no, there's a fair amount of people doing it. Even for any of the ones that need casting or anything like that, you still need someone who can make them. Its not dying.
Good. Good to hear it.
Okay, so we're standing outside Kilkenny Castle. And its such a beautiful landmark. It actually dates from the thirteenth century and it was owned by the Butler family for six hundred years.
So in general, this whole project is all these chairs were designed and made by people with mental health difficulties.
