Melbourne-born artist and writer, Alice Jane Muskett was an early pupil of Julian Ashton, who recognized her talent and beauty. She exhibited annually from 1890, and in 1895 she went to Paris to study art, and exhibited her work both in Paris and London. In 1909 artist David Souter said she was ‘probably the most talented of our women painters.’ Muskett work is held in the Art Gallery of NSW collection. Ref: ADB.
