Hilda Montalba (1846—1919) was a British painter and sculptor.
Hilda Montalba was born in England in the mid-1840s, one of four daughters of the Swedish-born artist Anthony Rubens Montalba and Emeline (née Davies). The 1871 British census shows Anthony Montalba living at 19 Arundel Gardens, Notting Hill, London, with four daughters, all artists.
Hilda and her three sisters all attained high repute as artists. The Montalba sisters were regular contributors to the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition during the 1870s. Like her sisters, Hilda painted many landscape subjects, including scenes of Venice. Like Clara she painted fishing boats, and also painted close-up studies of Venetian people. One notable example of her work is a painting now in the Graves Art Gallery in Sheffield, Boy Unloading a Venetian Market Boat.
