About Robert Bateman

Born in Toronto, Robert Bateman has been a keen artist and naturalist from his early days. Bateman painted wildlife and wilderness in a representational style until his teens when he began to interpret nature using a variety of contemporary styles, including post-impressionism and abstract expressionism. In the early 1960's, Bateman rediscovered realism and began to develop the style that would make him one of the foremost artists depicting the world of nature. In the 70's and 80's, Bateman's work began to receive critical acclaim and to attract an enormous following. Since his first one-man show in 1967, Bateman has had numerous sell-out exhibitions in Canada, the United States and Great Britain. His work is in many public and private collections, including several museums. He was commissioned by the Governor General of Canada to do a painting as the wedding gift for HRH The Prince Charles from the people of Canada. His work is also included in the collections of HRH The Prince Philip, the late Princess Grace of Monaco and Prince Bernard of the Netherlands. Bateman had had many one-,man museum shows throughout North America, including an exhibition at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC; most of these shoes have drawn record-breaking crowds. His honors, awards and honorary doctorates are numerous; he was made Officer of the Order of Canada, that country's highest civilian award. he has also been the subject of six films. Two books of his art, The Art of Robert Bateman and The World of Robert Bateman, have made publishing history; they have sold more than a half million copies. a third book of his art, Robert Bateman: An Artist in Nature, focuses on his work both as a painter and a conservationist.

With a degree in geography from the University of Toronto, Bateman's art reflects his commitments to ecology and preservation. Since the early 60's, he has been an active member of naturalist clubs and other conservation organizations. This involvement has increased in recent years and is now on a global scale. He has become a spokesman for many environmental and preservation issues and has used his artwork and limited edition prints in fundraising efforts, which have provided millions of dollars for these worthy causes. He says, "I cant's conceive of anything being more varied and rich and handsome that the planet Earth. And its crowing beauty is the natural world. I want to soak it up, to understand it as well as I can, and to absorb it. And then I'd like to put it together and express it in my paintings. this is the way I want to dedicate my work.
