This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Smithsburg, Maryland, Emily Bishop enrolled at the Maryland Institute School of Art in Baltimore at age sixteen. She graduated in 1904 and entered the Pennsylvania Academy on a scholarship and studied with William Merritt Chase. He found her work "so full of force and originality" that he showed it to students in New York.

She traveled in England, Holland, Italy and Greece on two Cresson scholarships from the Pennsylvania Academy, and by 1908, had her own studio in Paris. In Philadelphia, she graduated from the Academy in 1911, and then shared a studio with Beatrice Fenton and won many commissions for bas reliefs, friezes and sculptures for public buildings including the Academy of Music in Philadelphia. Between 1907 to 1913, her work was exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy.

At age twenty-eight in 1912, she died from an undiagnosed disease, but the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exhibition in San Francisco had sixteen works on exhibit as a memorial to her.
