Isabel Bishop

American, (1902–1988)
New York School of Applied Design for Women, Art Students League
Art Students League 1936-1937

"Isabel Bishop (1902-1988) was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and grew up in Detroit. She created drawings, etchings, and aquatints. Earlier in her career, she concentrated on single figures, capturing her models' strong personalities. In 1961, she started making aquatints and her compositions became more abstract. In Detroit she studied at the John Wicker Art School before moving to New York and studying illustration at the New York School of Applied Design for Women.
Later at the Art Students League she studied with Kenneth Hayes Miller and Guy du Bois. Bishop had a solo exhibition at the Whitney Studio Club in 1926. She married in 1934 and moved to Riverdale, New York, although she continued to maintain a studio on Union Square. Bishop was associated with other artists, including Reginald Marsh, Alexander Brook, Yasuo Kuniyoshi and the brothers Isaac, Moses and Raphael Soyer. Like Bishop, these artists were fascinated and inspired by the parade of humanity.
Bishop produced over 100 prints in sixty years."
