Hope You Never
„I hope my work is recognizable as being by a woman, though I certainly would never deliberately make it feminine in any way, in subject or treatment.“
— Isabel Bishop American painter 1902 - 1988
Context: I hope my work is recognizable as being by a woman, though I certainly would never deliberately make it feminine in any way, in subject or treatment. But if I speak in a voice which is my own, it's bound to be the voice of a woman. 1978 statement, as quoted in The "New Woman" Revised : Painting and Gender Politics on Fourteenth Street (1992) by Ellen Wiley Todd, Ch. 7, p. 273.
— Henri Barbusse French novelist 1873 - 1935
Context: The eye is lost in all directions among the desolation where the multitude of men and women are hiding, as always and as everywhere. That is what is. Who will say, "That is what must be!" I have searched, I have indistinctly seen, I have doubted. Now, I hope.
