Biography   August Thiele


Arthur Julius Thiele (1841-1916) German

Arthur Thiele, born 1841, died 1916. Best known for his ability to "humanize" animals, the most common examples of his work feature dogs and cats to portray human events. A typical scene of his would be an old-fashioned classroom with misbehaving students.

Stroefer of Nuremberg (TSN), published most of Thiele's work with number 700-2500.

His early works dealt more with a single animal picture, while later work dealt with busier scenes with many animals. Thiele was a prolific artist, working in his 70's. His set, numbered 1424 published by Theo Stroefer of Nurenberg, Germany, depicting over-sized cat heads, is a favorite among collectors.
