|A Bacchante 1909|
In this painting Arthur Wardle imagines a Bacchante dancing amongst wild flowers surrounded by equally intoxicated leopards. In the early twentieth century, Wardle was one of Britain's most respected animal painters, known for his pastel, watercolor and oil paintings - especially paintings with mythical themes, and those of wild cats with wild women. He is unique in his ability to combine romantic subjects with an emotionally engaging, naturalistic style of painting.
