Harry Robert Mileham (1873–1957)

Royal Pavilion & Museums Trust, Brighton & Hove
Painter, born in London, who attended Dulwich College, Lambeth Art School and Royal Academy Schools, where he won a Gold Medal and travelling studentship. Mileham’s decorative work is found in a number of churches, such as Foleshill Church, Coventry; St Thomas’, Hove; Chapel Royal, Brighton; and Wakefield Cathedral. He was a keen organiser of pageants, reflected in a body of historical paintings. Settled in Hove, Sussex, and was a leading member of Brighton Art Club as well as a long-standing member of the Art Workers’ Guild. Showed at RA, Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts, RCamA and elsewhere. There was a retrospective at Leighton House in 1995. Hove Museum & Art Gallery holds Mileham’s work, that of a natural and belated Victorian.
