Canadian-born Robert Bateman is that rara avisan articulate artist, able to explain, analyze, and interpret his own work as few painters can. Interested in art and nature early in life, Bateman concentrated on wildlife subjects. After 1962, influenced by an Andrew Wyeth exhibit, he developed his unique styleabstract form within realism. In 1981 The Art of Robert Bateman ( LJ 1/ 1/82) was published, also with Derry, supplying biography and 75 reproduc tions.
