One of the great gifts of Stephen's life was sharing his intimate knowledge of Yosemite, which he literally knew from top to bottom. With his classic, monumental landscape Storm Over Tenaya Canyon, we soar high above granite domes. Steve often included wildlife in his pieces and sometimes suggested a narrative, but this pure landscape is a deliberate departure... almost certainly inspired by the dramatic images of Albert Bierstadt and other 19th-century painters of the west.

“He paints the wilderness with a knowledge and genuineness that can only be expressed by someone who has ‘been there’.”
Stephen Lyman was an explorer who specialized in painting the most elusive moments in nature. His inspiring work was inspired, in turn, by the writing and teachings of famous naturalist John Muir. "Muir wrote, 'Climb the mountains and get their good tidings,'" Stephen said. "I know exactly what he meant." Stephen's love of the great outdoors stemmed from a childhood spent in the Pacific Northwest, where hiking in Snake River country was a regular family ritual.
