Arthur Wardle Biography
Born in London and self-taught, Arthur Wardle was one of the best-known British animal artists in the 20th century. Arthur Wardle portrayed an astonishing diversity of subjects with an engaging naturalism, and a command of different media. Unlike most British animal and sporting artists who restricted themselves to horse and hound, deer and domesticated beasts, Arthur Wardle both drew and painted every mammal from elephant to mouse, in watercolor, pastel and oils.
Wardle's reputation may have
been made with his large mythological
paintings, but his most individual work was
in pastel, which underwent a revival in
Britain in the 1890s. Inspired by French
art, many leading British artists had
experimented successfully with pastel,
leading to the foundation of the Pastel
Society, of which Wardle was elected a
member in 1911.
|As his mythical creations drew to their climax with ‘A Bacchante’ in 1909, Wardle embarked on a new series of major paintings. Perhaps it was his uncanny commercial instincts that prompted him to combine beautifully dressed women or children with the fashionable dog breeds from the Edwardian era to illustrate human partialities. With characteristic artistry, Arthur Wardle managed to depict such emotions as Jealousy, and Companionship, without the sentimentality that is synonymous with the age.|
Even his ‘A Girl’s Best Friend’ evokes a
more realistic portrayal of friendship, than
Charles Burton Barber’s overtly sentimental
‘Sweethearts’, which it resembles.
If big cats and wild game from the African and Indian continents were to establish Wardle’s artistic credentials, it was his ability to capture the expression and essence of his subjects that make him one of today’s most collectable of artists. Perhaps best known for his portrayal of terriers, whose portraits Arthur Wardle enlivened with something of their mischievous spirit, his portfolio included most breeds. Often seen sitting ringside at some of the UK’s most prestigious shows, and working in his favourite medium of pastels on richly coloured paper, Arthur Wardle could depict a dog’s character in little more than a few strokes. His head and shoulder portrait of Newmarket Popgun being typical of the genie. - Arthur Wardle animal paintings and animal painting artist - Arthur Wardle English artist oil painting old –Arthur Wardle Bio, animal painting by English oil paintings old artist of animal paintings artist, Wardle oil paintings artist.
An almost photographic style, coupled with his willingness to enhance any qualities whilst minimizing all faults, was to make him the darling of the canine fancy. His understanding of structure and breed character made Arthur Wardle the natural choice of early canine chroniclers. With some of his finest examples, beautifully and sympathetically engraved by the talented O.
|Butterworth, of whom so little is known, used to illustrate Rawdon Lee’s contribution to canine literature, including The Collie or Sheepdog. These commissions leading to major cigarette companies engaging Arthur Wardle to produce several sets of lavish cards depicting various dog breeds, which are themselves now highly sought after collectors items.|
