“There are still places where one can see the timeless activities of man and nature.
Although this is a scene which happened a short time ago near my own home,
it could have happened, in every detail, a century ago. The corral leading to the
barnyard is fenced with split cedar rails. The siding on the barn probably came
from the original white pine on the property, and as the gentle snow drifts down,
the sheep are slowly making their way to the protection of the barnyard for the
night. The flat, almost abstract patterns of white on gray and gray on white
reminded me of an old photograph or etching.”

Nature as a subject is becoming more and more popular as our environment is in peril. What better subject is there than the beautiful creatures we share this world with? Robert Bateman’s appreciation and understanding of nature are apparent in his paintings. He is able to paint flora and fauna the way your eye would perceive it in real life. It is important that the animal takes full attention. The background becomes muted, and therefore it doesn’t take too much focus away from the subject. His paintings seem effortless and masterful all at once.
Bateman’s eye for composition is unparalleled. Each painting is a composed like a symphony, leading the eye to wander. From the backyards of North America to the sprawling plains of Africa. Robert Bateman captures nature the way it should be enjoyed. Above all he is a champion of wildlife. For this reason he has become a household name for art collectors.
