            Isabel Wolff Bishop (Ohio/New York, 1902-1988) black ink and wash on ivory paper drawing of a seated man reading the newspaper, viewed from behind, with penciled French line border. Signed in pencil, lower left. Housed under plexiglass in a partially silvered wooden frame with cream mat. Sight: 5" H x 4 3/4" W. Frame: 12 1/4" H x 12 1/4" W. Biography: "Born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1902, Isabel Bishop moved to New York at the age of sixteen to study art at both the New York School of Applied Design for Women and the Art Students League. With a studio on 14th Street, Bishop was identified as a member of the Fourteenth Street School, along with Kenneth Hayes Miller and Reginald Marsh. Although Bishop was influenced by Renaissance and Baroque art, her late-1920s to the mid-1930s work is characterized by depiction of the urban working class and destitute men and women around Union Square. She served as a perceptive observer of appearance and action and sought to capture the everyday behaviors of normal people. Later in her life, she became enamored with the hustle and bustle of college students around New York University, which was a return to the very street scenes of her earlier days."

Lot Essay Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Isabel Bishop spent her childhood in Detroit, Michigan, raised in a very proper and respectable family of intellectuals. She moved to New York at the young age of 16 to hone her burgeoning drawing skills at the New York School of Applied Design, with the intention of working in the illustration field during the auspicious time known then as the 'Golden Age of Illustration.’ Two years later, however, she switched to studying painting at the Art Students League. The loose organization of the school allowed Bishop to work under various professors and explore different styles and influences. Following a complicated relationship with Max Weber, who deprecated her work, Bishop went on to study under Kenneth Hayes Miller, who would become a lifelong mentor and friend.  Bishop instantly fell in love with New York when she moved there as a teenager, and grew enthralled by the chaotic, yet beautiful movement of large crowds traversing the city streets and avenues. The artist recalls the awakening she felt as she came back to New York after a brief interlude in Maine: "I was struck by the beauty, drama, and miraculous effects of a crowd of people in motion. It seemed magical. It seems as though the movement involved more than I could take in with my eyes because the air became solid–it was like a continuum, this ambiance in which this beautiful interchange took place." Although she exclusively executed her oils in her Fourteenth Street Studio, Bishop regularly ventured around Union Station in search of inspiration. Considered a haven for artists in the 1920s and 1930s, the area had transformed over the years–the mansions, elegant department stores, and fashionable strollers slowly were replaced by small industries, in-and-out restaurants, and workers who poured into the streets at lunchtime or on their way to/from work. Bishop especially liked to paint walking women and to capture their slim silhouettes as they stopped for a quick bite or a refreshment at the local soda fountain. The present painting is an important work by the artist, which perfectly reflects her decade-long obsession with movement, and especially with the motif of people walking in the street. "I have come to think that walking is absolutely beautiful, and I could not tell you why,” Bishop explained. She first explored the theme of small anonymous individuals colliding in a big city in the 1930s and soon made it her speciality, which earned her recognition and representation by the then-new Midtown Galleries, who promoted her until her death in 1988. When painting Soda Fountain with Passersby in 1960, Bishop was most interested in the location depicted. At the center of the composition is the diner at the corner of Twenty-Third Street, which had a “fascinating, beautiful warmth” and lured passersby at lunch and dinner time, as a neon light attracts flies. Bishop especially liked the effects that the electric lights and the glass reflections projected onto the passing crowds, which made them look like phantasmagoric specters idling in the street. About this special effect, Bishop said, "I love it, but I have to make the painting say what I feel about it. How? I don’t know. I’ve been working on it for a couple of months. I’ve made endless small sketches, not, I’m afraid with the aim of making the subject more literally right, but simply to keep the feeling that I have about it alive." To capture this ephemeral feeling, Bishop devised a tedious method later characterized by scholars as Bishop’s signature “deep frozen technique.” The artist herself acknowledged: “I do use a very complex technique I’m sorry to say. Not because I wanted to be complex, but in an effort to make the painting speak back to me. I’d do anything to get that result." Striving for perfection, Bishop–who was considered the most literate among her peers–researched, embraced, and evolved many preexisting techniques and traditions. One of her influences was Peter Paul Rubens's use of gesso, which is evident here as the painting was layered with several coats of the paint mixture. The series of random vertical and horizontal lines Bishop then drew in gelatin, powdered charcoal, and white lead works to ensnare the drawn figures within a transparent, trembling surface, creating a “web-like, mobile environment,” as Helen Yglesias describes it. The scholar continues to describe Bishop's technique: “The drawing was then added in pencil or ink and black or umber tempera. Then varnish was applied and blotted at once in order to keep the gesso less absorbent of the oil painting that was to be applied over it. Tone upon tone was then overladen this tacky round, the striped underpainting remaining visible through the layers of oil.”  The result is a refreshingly dynamic image, which contrasts with other contemporary views of New York City–such as those by Bishop's friend, Reginald Marsh, and Edward Hopper–that focused on the seedy, solitary, and depressing aspects of city life. Here, Bishop uplifts the viewer: she paints the scene as a scrolling fresco, enlivened by golden hues and sporadic bold touches of color. Although the figures walk alone and don't interact, their relationship to one another, however short-lived, is felt and understood. As passersby, they enter into a very natural, almost instinctive, dance in the concrete jungle, reflecting the artist’s comfort in her environment–the city which pushed her to find a unique stylistic voice that inspired critics like Emily Genauer to dub her “with vehemence and conviction, (…) one of the most important woman painters in America.”

            Isabel (Wolff) Bishop New York, Ohio, (1902 - 1988) men and women walking etching with aquatint Signed lower right, numbered 54/ 65 lower left. Biography from the Archives of askART: Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Isabel Bishop was a leading painter and printmaker in New York City during the early and middle part of the 20th century. Her subject matter was urban life of common people in lower Manhattan, and she showed great sensitivity to individual personalities. Along with Reginald Marsh and the Soyer brothers, Bishop was an outstanding, determined realist when Abstract Expressionism was the all-prevalent style. She spent her childhood in Detroit, Michigan, and in 1918, at age sixteen, went to New York to study illustration at the New York School of Applied Design for Women. She attended the Art Students League where Kenneth Hayes Miller and Guy Pene du Bois became major influences. Hayes inspired her to turn to the street life of New York for subject matter and insisted on fine draftsmanship. DuBois made her aware of character and personality differences. In 1925, she turned to etching, beginning with nude studies and then turning to vignettes of everyday life. For many years she had a studio on Union Square at 14th Street, and the Square provided her with much human activity subject matter. She shared a subject interest with Reginald Marsh, and she traveled with him and Kenneth Hayes Miller in Europe in 1931 to study the Old Masters. In 1938, she worked as a Muralist for the W.P.A., and did a mural for the U.S. Post Office in New Lexington, Ohio, and also illustrated the Jane Austen novel Pride and Prejudice in 1946. She was an elected Member of the National Academy of Design, a Life Member of the National Academy of Design, and had representation in New York with the Midtown Gallery.
