Edith Corbet was a landscape painter, closely associated with the 'Etruscan' group. In 1891 she cemented the association by marrying Matthew Ridley Corbet, one of the group's most important artists. She was born Edith Edinborough. . . [and] was exhibiting in London by 1871. She then married the painter Arthur Murch and lived in Rome where she worked with Giovanni Costa, the leader of the Etruscans. In 1876 they both stayed in Venice. Olivia Rossetti Agresti wrote: 'Costa had a very high opinion of this artist's gifts and used to remember with pleasure how on that occasion they used to go out together to paint from nature at Fusino' (Agresti, 1904). Between 1880 and 1890 Edith Murch exhibited many works at the Grosvenor Galleryand the New Gallery. After her marriage to Corbet she exhibited primarily at the Royal Academy, visiting Italy but living in London for the rest of her life. Edith Corbet's works share the Etruscan preoccupation with harmonious and subdued opaque colour. She too painted panoramic landscapes on elongated horizontal canvases.
