Curators in Conversation: Carolyn Bauer on "Isabel Bishop: The Working Woman"
Formally trained at the Art Student League of New York—where she would later become the institution’s first full-time female instructor—Isabel Bishop (American, 1902-1988) emerged as a printmaker and painter in the 1930s, becoming a key figure in what came to be known as the Fourteenth Street School. Over her long career—encompassing over 60 years—she moved fluidly between the mediums of drawing, etching, and painting, depicting realistic urban scenes and subject matter she observed and later rendering female nudes.

Shelburne Museum is fortunate to hold a sizable collection of works on paper by this renowned artist; within its permanent collection are 18 ink drawings and 26 etchings. Join Carolyn Bauer, associate curator, in a lavishly illustrated presentation, Isabel Bishop: The Working Woman, highlighting the museum’s collection, sharing Bauer’s recent research, and exploring the incredible life and work of this extraordinary artist.
