Robert McLellan Bateman (Canadian, b. 1930) is a resident of Fulford Harbor, British Columbia, Robert Bateman became one of the foremost wildlife painters of the late 20th century. This statement is reinforced by the fact he was voted Favorite Artist by readers of "Wildlife Art" magazine in a millennium poll. He regards each work as a challenge, and is leary of becoming a formula painter, something that he feels is a plague on wildlife art. Robert Bateman is a realistic painter in acrylic of birds with "an abstract structure showing the total environment." He was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in 1930 and lives in Milton, Ontario. By 1972, his work was included in the Bird Artists of the World Show in London. After other honors in 1974 and 1975, he quit teaching to paint full time. Featured in "Southwest Art" in September 1980, he is listed in Who's Who in American Art and is member of the Society of Animal Artists and the Northwest Rendezvous Group. (Thanks to Broadmoor Gallery) Mr. Bateman's high auction price for an original work is $110,000.00.
