Mileham, Harry (1873-1957)

(1873-1957) Recognised as a greatly talented student in the 1890s, Harry Mileham has been recently re-discovered. He studied at the Royal Academy Schools from 1892-95, and was awarded the Schools’ premier prize – the Gold Medal and travelling studentship for Historical Painting. At the RA schools he attended classes conducted by Leighton, Tadema and Clausen. It is significant for their pupil that these were the very men who, being ‘subject’ painters par excellence, represented the highest point achieved by the artistic establishment of his time.
