ROBERT BATEMAN: LIFE SKETCHES -- A MEMOIR. Simon & Schuster Canada, Simon & Schuster Inc., Toronto, 2015. 350 pp. with 164 ills. (41 col.). 24 x 20 cm. ISBN 9781476782973 In English.
Publisher's description: Full of never-before-seen illustrations, Life Sketches is an inspiring and elegant portrait of Robert Bateman's life as an artist and of his belief that "Nature is an infinite source of reason, imagination, and invention." From one of Canada's most beloved painters comes an intimate, visually stunning memoir of the artist at work. Internationally acclaimed artist Robert Bateman has brought the natural world to vivid life with his unique perspective. His vast body of work -- spanning species as large as the buffalo and as small as the mouse -- has touched millions of hearts and minds, awakening a reverence for wildlife of all kinds. Bateman is perhaps best known for his gorgeous depictions of birds in flight and in repose, images that stir in the viewer a deep appreciation of color, form and spirit. Life Sketches is a moving journey in both words and images that, for the first time, allows Bateman's fans full access into his creative process, detailing his singular artistic vision and the inspiration behind his iconic art. What emerges is a portrait of a young boy enchanted by the natural world around him and called to record it in his sketches and paintings.
