He was a member of an artistic family of, very accomplished, sporting and animal painters. He was born near Bath and studied under his father John A. Wheeler (1821-1903). He was often simply known as Alfred Wheeler to differentiate him from his father.
-
He continued his close working relationship with his father and after he married Catherine Muspratt in 1874 he moved next door to his father at Raglan Villas, Bath. Alfred then followed his father when the latter moved to Hanwell. Alfred and Catherine had six children of whom Walter Herbert and John Frederick became artists.
-
Alfred Wheeler was always very well regarded for his portraits of racehorses and dogs.
He received commissions from Baron Rothschild and the Prince of Wales.
