Biography from Crocker Art Museum Store:
Portrait painter. Born in Cincinnati, OH on Jan. 14, 1857. Alice Pike was raised in an atmosphere of wealth and culture. In 1875 she married Albert Barney. She first studied painting in her native city with Elizabeth Nourse and continued in Paris under Carolus-Duran and James Whistler. (In 1919 she was the wife of Christian Hemmick.)

She maintained a home in Washington, DC until moving to Hollywood, CA in 1924. Although she painted landscapes and nudes in both oil and pastel, she was primarily a portraitist. Her sitters included Whistler and George Bernard Shaw. She was also a playwright of such plays as "Moon Madness", "Mata Hari", and "Lighthouse". (The latter won the Drama League of America contest in 1927.)

The artist died in Los Angeles on Oct. 12, 1931.
