About Richard E. Bishop

Richard E. Bishop traveled throughout North America and to the Scottish Moors to study, record, and film birds with both still and slow motion cameras. He produced images of many types of birds and game, but his specialty was waterfowl and upland game birds. Throughout his life, he handled all aspects of the printing process, personally inking the plates and pulling the prints. While Bishop's prints are subtle and elegant, his oil paintings are brightly colored for advertising purposes. Bishop in most respects was self-taught. He appropriated the techniques and nuances of etching, dry point, and aquatint---through trial and error, relying on his critical, engineer's eye to guide his hand. He built his own printing press for his limited editions, keeping the entire printmaking process in his own hands.
