This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Painter, writer, printmaking artist and illustrator, Isle Marthe Bischoff illustrated 12 books between 1928 and 1946.

Bischoff was born in New York in 1903.  She attended the Art Students League of New York City and the Parsons School of Design and traveled abroad to study in Europe.   Among her art instructors were Frank Vincent DuMond, Mahonri Young, William Zorach, Guy Pene du Bois, George Buchner and Joseph Pennell, an artist also known as an illustrator, painter, and printmaker.

During the 1940s and 1950s, she did much figurative and portrait work including depictions of African-Americans.  She wrote two novels about portrait painter Gilbert Stuart, Proud Heritage (1949) and Painter's Coach (1943).

Ilse Bischoff has held memberships with the Art Students League and the American Institute of Graphic Artists in New York.  She received special recognition for her artwork that was exhibited by the American Institute of Graphic Artists in 1930, and Philadelphia Print Club in 1927. 

Bischoff died on December 5, 1990 at her home in Hartland, Vermont.

Her work is part of the permanent collections at the Museum of Modern Art and the New York Public Library in New York City; Brooklyn Museum of Art in New York; and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts in Massachusetts.  Her autobiography, completed in 1953, is titled Drive Slowly: Six Dogs.
