These Notes from AskART represent the beginning of a possible future biography for this artist. Please click here if you wish to help in its development:
From Stratford, Connecticut, Charles "Shang" Wheeler was a highly-skilled decoy carver, known for some of the best representations of black wood ducks. He was also an enthusiastic hunter.

Biography from Copley Fine Art Auctions, LLC:
Charles Edward Wheeler is recognized as the most famous bird carver from Connecticut.  While his predecessors Albert Laing (1811-1886) and Benjamin Holmes (1843-1912) made many gunning decoys of exceptional quality, it was Wheeler who took the art form to the next level, producing everything from sandhill cranes to sailfish.

Shang, as everyone called him, was an enigmatic figure: oysterman, politician, boxer, cartoonist, public speaker, conservationist, and world-renowned decoy carver.
