“The historic parts of the world have a particular charm for me. This goes beyond nostalgia
and longing for the “good old days”. There was, and still is, great merit in the “small is
beautiful” world when people took care of themselves and put things together with their
own hands. It was a world of human scale which also was closer to nature. We need
to move in that direction again.This is a Mennonite buggy parked in front of a drive
shed. The large, black rectangle reminded me of the empty, dark spaces in some
of the abstracts of Mark Rothko. The grain on the ground has provided food for
the cardinals, juncos and song sparrows.”
Robert Bateman has been called the most famous living artist. He continues to paint and tour the world to promote conservation and preservation of nature. We have represented Robert Bateman for decades and are now the sole publisher and distributor of his reproductions. We are so honored to work with him and witness his success. He has made such a massive contribution to the art world and the natural world as an artist and educator of the earth’s most important resources.
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.
