Biography from Newman Galleries:
Born in Syracuse, New York in 1887, Richard E. Bishop was a noted painter, etcher, and writer.  He graduated from Cornell University and continued his studies at the Graphic Sketch Club in New York City, and with Ernest D. Roth.  He resided in Mt. Airy on the outskirts of Philadelphia, PA for many years.

Bishop was a member of the Philadelphia Print Club, the Chicago Society of Etchers, the Philadelphia Society of Etchers, the Society of American Etchers, Philadelphia Sketch Club, Philadelphia Watercolor Club, Philadelphia Art Alliance, and California Printmakers.

In 1924, his Canada Geese was awarded the Charles Lea Prize from the Philadelphia Print Club.

Bishop's paintings and prints may be found in the Honolulu Art Museum, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

An artist internationally known for his wildlife prints, Bishop illustrated the book Prairie Wings by Edgar Queeney and, in 1936, published Bishop's Birds (J. B. Lippincott).

He was the original artist for the prestigious Federal Duck Stamp program at its inaugural in 1936.

The artist died in 1975 at the age of 87.
