About this book

Originally published in 1981, The Art of Robert Bateman was the first of many best-selling books by the internationally acclaimed wildlife artist and naturalist. In this twenty-fifth-anniversary edition, Bateman's exquisitely rendered paintings, accompanied by the artist's recollections and observations, are presented in a new volume for art lovers and nature lovers alike to enjoy.

Over the course of Robert Bateman's career, his work has brought tremendous vitality and distinction to the world of wildlife art. His astonishingly detailed and carefully composed paintings of birds and mammals have been received with enthusiasm by both the public and the leading authorities in the field.

The Art of Robert Bateman was the artist's first book. Now, along with long-time Bateman fans who can add this wonderfully rich and colourful volume to their library, a new generation of art and animal lovers can enjoy Bateman's work in this gorgeous 25th anniversary edition. More than eighty colour images offer a breathtaking opportunity for the reader to revel in the tremendous scope of the paintings: from a tiny sparrow in a richly detailed streambank to a massive rhinocerous head; from an infinitely delicate heron to a majestic vista of an elk dwarfed by the Rocky Mountains. In the accompanying commentary, Bateman acts as a guide to his own paintings, recalling encounters with wildlife subjects and pointing out unexpected features and details.

Text by Ramsay Derry, updated for this edition, and with an introduction by Roger Tory Peterson.
