Julius Arthur Thiele (June 11, 1841 in Dresden – April 30, 1919 in Hohenschäftlarn)
German painter of landscapes and animals, he studied from 1856 to 1860 at the Dresden Academy of Art under Ludwig Richter and then until 1864 with Julius Hübner. Arthur Thiele stayed in Düsseldorf in 1870 for further study purposes, where he received essential impulses from the animal painter Christian Kröner. After his marriage in 1882, Arthur Thiele lived and worked in Vienna for some years, after which he moved to Munich, which he chose as his permanent residence. At the Berlin exhibition of 1876, the first major work by him was acquired by Kaiser Wilhelm I.
Arthur Thiele was very successful as a landscape painter and as an artist within traditional animal painting in Munich. His style of representation is characterized by a wide-ranging pictorial presentation that bears impressionistic traits. His wild winter motifs are particularly popular.
