Stephen Lyman - Artist in Nature

Steve Lyman was only 34 years old when he died tragically in a climbing accident in Yosemite National Park in 1996.  Prior to his untimely death, he had already established himself as a world class painter and illustrator of  wildlife and the natural world.

Lyman's work reflects a remarkable skill in capturing the nuanced light in the evening or twilight.  He did many paintings that feature lanterns or campfires.  Even as a young man, Lyman had developed a substantial following in the art world.  Though he was moderately prolific, Lyman's passing sent the value of his original works into the stratosphere.

I started collecting wildlife art prints when I was a young man. I love Lyman's work and have long wanted to have a print of his for my collection.  Here are a few other works by  the late great, Stephen Lyman.


Here is a link to an art gallery that continues to features works by Stephen Lyman.
