Elizabeth Thompson (Lady Butler) (1846-1933) was a very important Female Painter who entered the Female School of Art at South Kensington in 1866. She was a specialist painter of historical paintings including Battle Scenes, unusual for a Female Painter in the 19th Century. She married Sir William Francis Butler (1838-1910) from Tipperary and in later life they settled at Bansha Castle, Tipperary in Ireland.
