Georgina Alice Gregory (1874 – 1964) was an Australian artist. She studied at the National Gallery School for five years in the 1880s, and attended the Melbourne School of Art (MSA) and Charterisville where she was taught by E. Phillips Fox and Tudor St. George Tucker.  At the MSA’s annual exhibition in 1898 she was award first prize for a landscape painting, described in Table Talk as “venturesome choice of a group of bare trees breaking the foreground of her picture provided difficulty enough for the oldest artist”.Gregory subsequently became a member of the Victorian Artists’ Society and regularly exhibited with them from 1898 to 1912.

One of Gregory’s most well known works is perhaps Four Art Students, Charterisville, an oil painting she completed while a student at the former. The painting shows four students working at the Charterisville estate of E. Phillips Fox, and has been exhibited and illustrated more than any other artwork by an Australian woman impressionist. n 1916 Gregory was one of the Melbourne artists who volunteered to paint the portraits of children to raise funds for the French Red Cross.  A solo exhibition of 176 her artworks at the Melbourne Athenaeum was opened by Sir Robert Garran in April 1925 and received mixed reviews. A joint exhibition with Jane Price in June 1942 was favourably reviewed, Harold Herbert reporting in the Argus that “Ina Gregory has caught the colour and has seen the decorative possibilities of autumn foliage … and many of her panels of orchard blossoms are splendid”
