Wardle, Arthur

At the age of sixteen in 1876, Arthur Wardle had his first painting, a study of cattle by the River Thames, displayed at the Royal Academy and this led to a lifelong interest in painting animals. In 1880 Wardle was living in Camden in central London, but by 1892 artistic success enabled him to move to the more upscale neighborhood of St John's Wood.

Arthur Wardle was very productive and up to 1936, he had exhibited over 100 paintings at the Royal Academy and the Society of British Artists. He painted an assortment of animal subjects with equal skill be they domestic or exotic animals including leopards, polar bears, and tigers such as The Deer Stealer painted from sketches that he made at the London Zoo.

Arthur Wardle is talented in oils, watercolors, and pastels and was elected to the Pastel Society in 1911 and became a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colors in 1922. In 1931 he had his first one-man show at the Fine Art Society and in 1935 the Vicar’s Gallery also had a one-man show of his artwork, he also exhibited in Paris at this time.

His career was successful and his works continue to be sought after and reproduced on postcards, calendars, and chocolate boxes. He remains one of the known dog painters of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and he is especially known for his paintings of terriers. Wardle painted what is the best-known painting of the fox terrier in its modern form, The Totteridge XI 1897.
