Artist of the Month: Isabel Bishop

The eighth artist that will be highlighted is: ISABEL BISHOP:Isabel_Bishop,_American_painter_and_printmaker,_1902-1988

According to her Wikipedia page: “Isabel was an American painter and graphic artist who depicted urban scenes of Union Square, New York, from the 1930s to the 1970s. She is best known for her depiction of American women and as a leading member of the Fourteenth Street School of artists.”

A quick summary of the Fourteenth Street School of artists can be found at: https://www.theartstory.org/movement/fourteenth-street-school/

Unfortunately, there is not a lot of information available for Isabel, no biography (from what I can tell), no website, just a couple of articles and her catalogue raisonné.

While looking into her online for this post, I came across some fascinating artwork of hers that deserves to be revisited:Bishop, Isabel (1902-1988) 3

Artists like Isabel are the reason that I create these Artist of the Month posts: so none of these artists are forgotten and, hopefully, they will be introduced to a new generation of admirers.bishop-isabel-1902-1988-2

I did manage to locate online “Art Talk: Conversations with 15 women Artists” by Cindy Nemser and Isabel can be found on pages 303–320… now all I have to do is just to get my hands on a copy…51vEWRkm27L._SX399_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg
