In 1872 he visited Iceland and published an illustrated account of his travels. Waller’s took great pains in studying animals, particularly horses and his knowledge and skill in representing them made him highly popular with the sporting set. He exhibited works at the Burlington House gallery, Royal Academy and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters. He died on 14 June 1903 at his studio in Haverstock Hill, London. Examples of his work can be found in the Harris Museum, Sheffield Museum and the Tate.
