K. ጦ BISHOP, ISABEL WOLFF (1902–1988) Painter, Printmaker Isabel Bishop’s realistic yet luminous paintings and drawings of ordinary city dwellers and their every- day urban activities display a mastery of draftsmanship and form.

New York: Prentice Hall, 1994. — C. K. ጦ BEAUX, CECILIA (1855–1942) Painter, Portraitist One of the most popular and distinguished female painters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Cecilia Beaux was an award-winning portraitist recognized for her masterful painterly style and sensuous brushwork, as well as her ability to capture character traits and physical likenesses. Her straightforward early portraits evolved, over time, into more complex, insightful works. Cecilia Beaux was born in 1855 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

She then used pastel crayons for color, for example, applying a trace of red on the cheeks. She also added her own unique decorative touches such as cutting out and pasting the face on a different-colored background or pasting on gold paper beads or shiny pieces of tinfoil to create ornamental eyeglasses or jewelry. To further enliven the silhouettes of her subjects, Bascom would occasionally include a bucolic landscape in the background, instead of the more commonplace pale backdrop. Examples of Bascom’s work include her SelfPortrait (1830), one of many, comprised of a softened image set off by a sharply defined facial outline.
