Library Journal - Library Journal
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. Bateman's prolific output in the years since has made possible this new book, with 94 stunning full-color plates, along with photographs of the painter, his family, and friends. Bateman's commentary on individual paintings is a delight. His accurate yet painterly con ceptions of wildlifemammals and birds in their native habitats from Afri ca to Alaskamake this an irresistible volume. Especially for public librar ies. Gloria K. Rensch, formerly with Vigo Cty. P.L., Terre Haute, Ind.
