BATEMAN, Robert (1930 – )
Canadian naturalist and painter, born in Toronto.
TLS – Typewritten Letter Signed, one page, Fulford Harbour, Canada, 1986. Reads: Thank you for your thoughtful letter. You certainly sound like a vital person. You are probably the type who has made the most of life. That’s the way I hope to be myself. There have been a couple of books published on my work and my life: The Art of Robert Bateman, published by Viking Press, and The World of Robert Bateman published by Random House. I am sending you a naturalist diary – – sorry the year is almost half over. Perhaps you would enjoy looking at the images and taking some vicarious trips through the words. Best wishes. Comes with original envelope hand – addressed by Bateman and two small color reprint images.
