" Paddling on a quiet lake, I am always excited at the thought of seeing a loon up close.
On this occasion, it was a soft summer day with an overcast sky. Carefully dipping my
paddle, I moved soundlessly around a point, and there they were - a pair of loons!
They moved out past the lily pads with stately dignity, sensitive to my presence, but
with no sense of panic. Then I became aware of the reason for the slow pace
but alert demeanor. There were two baby loons. They had just recently hatched,
and they were headed out to the open lake, perhaps for the first time."
Robert Bateman

ORIGINAL PRINTS

Original Lithographs 

"The process of original printmaking apeals to me because it is a human process; 
it involves no complex optical equipment other than my own eyes. I believe that
technology often separates us from nature, and I like the idea that my 
original prints are made by hand."
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 hand and 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 etchings of Rembrandt. I also enjoy drawing directly on the stone. It's tooth, or texture, gives a 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 faithfully reproduces their line drawings and brush strokes and offers them great creative freedom. Original lithography produces a wide range of tonal values and textures. 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 lithographs because no two are ever exactly the same. 

This is because an original lithograph is not a reproduction - each is an original and unique work of art. The artist  makes separate drawings, one for each color to be printed, directly on the working surface (commonly stone or Mylar film ) to create individual plates. An original lithograph must pass through the press one time 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.
