Caudebec-en-Caux – The Artists – Childers, Milly

This page forms part of a series of pages dedicated to the many artists who painted in Caudebec-en-Caux. A full list of all the artists with a link to their works can be found at the bottom of this page.

NOTE: Caudebec-en-Caux has recently merged (2016) with other towns nearby and is now called “Rives-en-Seine“. However, since the artists called the town by its original name in their paintings, we will continue to refer to the place by its old name.

Emily Maria Eardley Childers (1866–1922), known as Milly Childers, was an English painter of the later Victorian era and the early twentieth century.

She was the daughter of Hugh Childers, a prominent Member of Parliament and Cabinet minister of his generation. Little is known about Milly Childers’s early life; she began exhibiting her art around 1890.

After her father’s 1892 retirement from public service, father and daughter traveled together through England and France; Milly Childers painted landscapes and church interiors. Her father’s social and political connections brought his daughter some commissioned work, including as a restorer and copyist for Lord Halifax at Temple Newsam. Childers exhibited her work at the Palace of Fine Arts at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Illinois.

We found only one of her paintings dealing with Caudebec-en-Caux
