Robert Bateman Chinstrap Penguin

" CHINSTRAP PENGUIN "
Robert Bateman

810 s/n Paper
12" x 9"
$199


 Robert Bateman Signature 

There are many species of penguin in the southern hemisphere.  They all
have special characteristics, but they have in common the tuxedo-like black
on the back and white on the belly.  Virtually all sea birds, including loons
and murres, have this same pattern. An enemy from below, such as a
leopard seal, cannot readily see a white belly against the reflectiong surface
of the sea, and a predator from above would not easily see the protective
camouflage of the black back. The heads of all penguins, however, have
the particular badge of the species. The name "chinstrap" has
an obvious origin. This penguin has its own particular facial
expression and almost oriental eyes.

This painting is simply a portrait of one of these little fellows
standing beside the typical lichen-encrusted rock of
the Antarctic Peninsula."
