historical notes Alice Pike Barney was an art collector, patron, artist, writer, theater director, philanthropist, and civic leader.

In 1899 she began a salon at her rented home on the Avenue Victor Hugo; regular guests included the Symbolist painters Lucien LĂ©vy-Dhurmer, John White Alexander, and Edmond Aman-Jean, and her art began to show a Symbolist influence.

Alice was married to Albert Clifford Barney, the son of a wealthy manufacturer of railway cars in Dayton, Ohio.
