Richard E. Bishop

Richard Bishop was born in Syracuse, New York, and graduated from Cornell University with a degree in engineering. He learned printmaking from Ernest Roth but was mainly self-taught as an artist and even built his own printing press. His subject in art was wild fowl which he studied using a movie camera to photograph the wing action and movement of the birds. The knowledge gained from these films helped him portray the birds in his etchings, oils, and water colors. His books, Bishop's Birds; Etchings of Waterfowl and Upland Game Birds, 1936, and Bishop's Waterfowl, 1948, contain reproductions of his etchings, drypoints, and paintings. He was a member of the Chicago Society of Etchers, American Society of Etchers, and Print Makers of California. His works have been exhibited at the National Academy, NYC, Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts, Cleveland Museum of Art, Chicago Art Institute, and the National Museum in Washington, DC. Bishop designed the third Federal Duck Stamp using his drypoint of Canada Geese, "Coming In."
