Olivia. An original watercolor by Bishop, gouache and graphite on paper, 6 ?? wide x 5? high
Benton 19. A little wooden church on Olivia Street in Key West not far from Bishop?s home at 624 White Street, where she lived from 1938 until 1946.Throughout this period, however, as Lorrie Goldensohn points out, ?until taking up residence in Brazil in 1951, Bishop rarely lighted in one place for more than seasons at a time. . . . The fractions of years and seasons are dizzying.? ? Elizabeth Bishop: The Biography of a Poetry (N.Y.: Columbia University Press, 1992), p. 103. Olivia Street borders the Southern Keys Cemetery, and it may have been Olivia Street along which Bishop enjoyed walking ?back & forth at night? past the graveyard
