Bounty Of The Wetlands - Robert Bateman

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Original lithography is an art form ideally suited to the work of Robert Bateman, who appreciates the direct,
hands-on involvement this process affords an artist.Comments Bateman, " In a world steeped in technology,
I admire tradition and the old methods. There is a great pleasure in making something by handand in using
skills that are hundreds of years old. "One of the reasons I enjoy printmaking is the broad range of tone and
texture the process allows;I am often reminded of the old masters, particularly the etxhings of Rembrandt. I also
enjoy drawing directly on the stone. It's 'tooth, 'or texture, givesa solid, warm feeling which brings to mind the
ancient seas in which the rare Bavarian limestone was formed."

THE CREATION OF ORIGINAL LITHOGRAPHS

Since the process of original lithography was first developed in 1798, many great artists have made memorable
original lithographs in their own distinctive style.Among them is Robert Bateman, celebrated artist and naturalist
known the world over. Artists especially value the lithographic process because it faithfullyreproduces their line
drawings and brush strokes and offers them great creative freedom. Original lithography produces a wide range
of tonal values andtextures. It is a process that requires time as well as the skilled hand of a master printer
working in concert with the artist. Collectors prize original lithographsbecause no two are ever exactly the same.

This is because an original lithograph in not a reproduction - each is an original and unique work of art. The artist
makes separate drawings, one for each colorto be printed, directly on the working surface (commonly stone
or Mylar film ) to create individual plates. An original lithograph must pass through the press onetime for each
color it contains. Hand coloring may be added later. Consequently, each original lithograph possesses its own
unique characteristics.
These Original prints of Robert Bateman bring together a time-honored tradition and
a legendary artist - one whose vision is always as original as it is compelling.
