Portrait of two fox terriers in a barn interior watching a hole in the wall intently. Arthur Wardle (British, 1864 -1949) was a prolific and very talented late nineteenth century artist who created an extraordinary body of work, yet surprisingly little has been written about him. Known by some as a painter of big game and wildlife, he is for dog lovers one of the pre-eminent painters of pure bred dogs that England has produced.
