An expert high realist painter, Bateman is best known for his razor-sharp precision and accuracy in depicting wildlife in their habitats. Ramsay Derry notes that Robert Bateman’s “exceptional quality of conveying the emotional world of an animal (which is based on a close knowledge of the biological and behavioural details of the animal and its environment) makes his pictures very exciting for biologists and natural scientists who
may sometimes know a great deal about the subjects.”

Robert Bateman
(1930)

Robert Bateman was born in Toronto on May 24, 1930. Bateman is an influential pioneer in his field of art paying homage to the world of nature. His respect for the environment is undeniable and his constant pursuit to help others see the importance of its fragility is extraordinary. Bateman says, "I can't conceive of anything being more varied and rich and handsome than the planet Earth. And its crowning beauty is the natural world. I like to soak it up, to understand it as well as I can and to absorb it. And then I like to put it together and express it in my paintings. This is the way I want to dedicate my work."
