Arthur Wardle is best known for his popular pictures of dogs, although he also painted a variety of other domestic and wild animals. He received no formal training, but learned his understanding of animals from visits to the zoo, where he made many ‘on the spot’ studies. From 1880 to 1938, he exhibited at the Royal Academy and the New Watercolour Society. Wardle held his first one-man exhibition at the Fine Art Society in 1931. Wardle worked in oil, pastel and watercolour; he became a member of the Pastel Society in 1911, and a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour in 1922.
