Item Description:

Arthur Wardle (1864-1949)
Snow Leopards
signed "ARTHUR WARDLE" lower right
oil on canvas, 22 1/2 by 36 1/4 in.

Arthur Wardle was born in London in 1864. At the age of sixteen, he exhibited an oil painting at the Royal Academy’s annual exhibition, and he went on to become one of the most successful animal artists of his generation. For much of his career, he lived in St. John’s Wood, within walking distance of the London Zoo. His studio was filled with models and skeletons of the animals he painted, including big cats and purebred dogs.

Conzelman writes, “he favored the world of big game, particularly the cats...Wardle painted these wild creatures with a great degree of naturalism and anatomical accuracy enhanced by a thorough study of the animals.” Wardle exhibited a painting titled "Snow-Leopards" at the Royal Academy in London in 1897. His work can be found in the Tate, London, and the National Museum of Wildlife Art, Jackson, Wyoming.
