Roland Wheelwright (1870 - 1955) was an Australian-born British painter. His work falls into three areas. Firstly, historical and romantic paintings in a realist style, usually choosing subjects with an excuse to feature horses, such as Don Quixote, and perhaps his best known painting, Joan of Arc taken Prisoner (1906). Later in his career he cut out the literature and produced rather conventional though bright pictures of horses in rustic surroundings, without any story. His third subject area was rather different - girls in Edwardian swimsuits, bathing or boating or sunning themselves. Wheelwright also did a fair amount of illustrative work, including Dickens, Scott, Dumas and the works of other great literary figures.
