Robert Bateman (1842-1922)

Robert Bateman (1842-1922) is a rather shadowy figure in late 19th century British art. He was a follower of Burne-Jones but was so completely forgotten that the painting usually regarded as his finest (The Pool of Bethesda) was not even recognised as being his work until 1965.
