Arthur Wardle (1860–1949) was an English painter.
Born inLondon, aged just sixteen Wardle had a piece displayed at theRoyal Academy. His first exhibit was a study of cattle by theRiver Thames, leading to a lifelong interest in painting animals.
Wardle was prolific; until 1936 he exhibited more than 100 works at the Royal Academy, as well as the Society of British Artists atSuffolk Street.
He painted a variety of animal subjects with equal skill but his work may be divided into two categories, domestic and exotic; animals from overseas including leopards, polar bears and tigers such as The Deer-Stealer (1915) were painted from sketches that he made atLondon Zoo.
He is considered equally proficient in oils, watercolours and pastels and was elected to the Pastel Societyin 1911  and became a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours in 1922. In 1931 he held his first one man exhibition at theFine Art Society and in 1935 the Vicar’s Gallery put on an exhibition of his work. He also exhibited inParis. By 1936 Wardle had moved to West London.
His career was highly successful and his works continue to be sought after and widely reproduced on postcards, calendars and boxes of chocolates. He remains one of the widely knowndogpainters of the 19th and 20th Centuries, and he is particularly known for his paintings ofterriers.
Arthur Wardle died on July 16, 1949.
