Biographical Information
Robert Bateman ~ [b.1930] Canadian RCA, OC
Born in Toronto, Bateman taught high school for 20 years, including two years in Nigeria, after graduating with an Honour's degree in geography from the University of Toronto in 1954. He began painting full time in 1976. His love and keen observation of the world around him was expressed through art from a young age. A recent article about him states that "by 12 years old, he had painted every hawk and owl in North America" [see below: article in Canadian Geographic]. The recipient of more than a dozen honourary doctorates and the subject of over nearly as many documentary films, he is one of the best known artists in Canada. He currently divides himself between his home on British Columbia’s Gulf Islands and a cottage in Ontario’s Haliburton County.
