John Alfred Wheeler

(British, 1821-1903)

Wheeler enlisted in the army at age 19, giving him first-hand exposure to horses that would later aid him in his artistic career. The prolific Wheeler painted military, hunting, and racing scenes as well as equestrian portraits that were in demand among the gentry of the day. His vibrant works included both small and large vistas, animating a single subject or uniting more than 150 people, horses, and hounds in one painting.
