Isabel Bishop

Bishop, Isabel, 1902–88, American painter, b. Cincinnati, Ohio. Influenced by the New York City painters of the 1930s, Bishop produced numerous paintings of working women. Her pensive nude studies, such as Nude—1934, demonstrate her understanding of delicate effects of light and shade.
