Note: Milne was an important member of the direct carving revival during the early years of the 20th Century and was perhaps the first woman sculptor in England to be influenced by the modern movement. Although she stopped carving in stone in 1917, she contributed the preface to a monograph on Ivan Mestrovic in 1919 - a publication that helped to spread Mestrovic’s influence in Britain. In her later years Milne concentrated on metalwork and tapestry making in the Arts and Crafts manner.
