"I remember that back in the 1980s, soon after Stephen painted 'Yosemite Alpenglow,' we briefly reproduced it as a black and white poster. Stephen sent it to park rangers, people he admired and respected and asked them to check it for accuracy. At first, some rangers thought it was a photograph because of its incredible level of clarity and detail. Then they noticed the valley was free of roads and buildings. Stephen captured Yosemite the way it used to look - the way we still wish it did." - Andrea Lyman

“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.
