George Edmund Butler
George Edmund Butler was born in 1870 in Southampton, and came to Wellington in 1881. He studied at the School of Art under J. M. Nairn, later proceeding to Australia and England for further study—at the Lambeth School of Art. He also received instruction at the Académie Julian in Paris, where he gained honours. On returning to New Zealand he settled in Dunedin, where in 1903-04 he taught drawing to private pupils. He soon returned to England, where he exhibited extensively, having many pictures hung in the Royal Academy and the Royal Scottish Academy.
