Arthur Thiele (1841-1916)

Most famous for his ability to "humanize" animals. The most common examples
of his work feature dogs and cats portraying human events.  A typical scene of
his would be an old-fashioned classroom with misbehaving students.  His early
work dealt more with a single animal image, whereas later work dealt with more
busy confused scenes of many animals. Thiele was a prolific artist,  working
into his 70s.  His set numbered 1424 published by Theo Stroefer of
Nurenberg, Germany, which depicts oversized cat heads, is a favorite among
collectors.
