Return of the Falcon
ANNIVERSARY EDITION CANVASCanvas

NOTES: In the 1950s and 60s, the worldwide population of peregrines, one of the most widespread birds on earth, plummeted drastically. The word “peregrine” means “the wanderer” and they were once found from coast to coast in North America. DDT laced pesticides nearly brought this raptor to extinction. The falcon disappeared from Yosemite in the late 1940s.

Today, this bird of prey is a symbol of a recovering species. In August 1999, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service removed the American peregrine falcon from the list of endangered and threatened species, marking one of the most dramatic successes of the Endangered Species Act. In November 2009, the peregrine was removed from California’s endangered species list, 10 years after it was federally delisted. Yosemite National Park represents the highest peregrine falcon nesting density in the Sierra Nevadas and has played a key role in its recovery since peregrines were first re-discovered in Yosemite in 1978, breeding on El Capitan.

In this painting, I have attempted to convey the immense space of Yosemite Valley with Half Dome bathed in the fleeting, golden light of sunset,” Steve Lyman said. “A peregrine falcon, the perfect flying machine, is a master of the air in grace, agility and speed. Its spectacular aerial displays and power dives at prey can at times exceed 200 miles per hour. This one waits, perched on precipitous cliffs, for prey to fly within range of his extraordinarily keen eyesight, ready to launch into the air at any moment.

If there was ever a contemporary artist that could capture on canvas the aura of Yosemite National Park, it was Steve Lyman. He was John Muir, the great naturalist, reincarnate. Like Muir, he was most alive and garnered his deepest inspiration while tramping through and about this great natural wonder.
Return of the Falcon was created in 1988 to recognize the efforts of all who participated in the peregrine recovery programs in the Yosemite area. This striking 22 x 35 Fine Art Edition Giclée canvas captures all the sweeping grandeur as well as the subtle detail of Lyman’s original work. The Greenwich Workshop Anniversary Edition program has introduced to a new generation of collectors the brilliant paintings of this talented naturalist. Return of the Falcon is truly a prime example of the wonder and beauty of one of the most important wildlife artists of our time.

Stephen Lyman bio

" He paints the wilderness with a knowledge and genuineness that can only be expressed by someone who has been there ." – Bev Doolittle Through Lyman s art, you can travel into a wilderness very few have experienced. You can share the sensation of being in the true outdoors – exploring, discovering, studying and enjoying the all-encompassing beauty of unspoiled nature. 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, " Lyman said. "I know exactly what he meant." Lyman 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. Lyman s desire to share his admiration for the outdoors was strong, but he enrolled in the Art Center School of Design in Pasadena, California, to learn more about the commercial art field. He started his career as a commercial illustrator in Los Angeles and soon realized that the call of the wild was stronger than the lure of the city. Returning to Idaho, he spent two years exploring and developing his own style of painting. He continued to discover the wonders of the natural world and of living a natural lifestyle. "All my paintings have their origins in my experience and perception of beauty in the wilderness," he said. Lyman s first limited edition print was published by The Greenwich Workshop in 1983. In subsequent years, he was a frequent participant in the prestigious international "Birds in Art" show at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum. He was invited to be "Artist of the Year" at the 1991 Pacific Rim Wildlife Art Show and then received the rare honor of being invited back as an "Encore Artist" at the 1995 event. Stephen Lyman actively shared the wonder of the natural world with a legion of collectors until his untimely death in 1996. He had been recently named one of the top artists in the country by U.S. Art magazine and his book, Into the Wilderness: An Artist s Journey, was published to unanimous acclaim in the autumn of 1995.
