Isabel Bishop was a painter and graphic artist who was best known for her paintings and drawings of working women, hoboes, and students. Her body of work illustrated the changing face of Union Square from the post-Depression milieu of the 1930s to the war protesters and students of the 1960s and 1970s. Bishop studied at the New York School of Applied Design for Women and was strongly influenced by the classical school of Flemish painters such as Peter Paul Rubens.

Bishop taught at the Art Students League as the only female full-time instructor from 1936-37 and also at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. She was the first woman to hold an executive position in the National Institute of Arts and Letters when she became vice-president in 1946.
