Not much is known about Waterloo's training as an artist. He seems to have been self-educated. As a painter Waterloo is known only as the author of several unimportant paintings. As a printmaker, however, he produced 136 etchings which earned him a major reputation during lifetime. His favourite subjects were forests and thickets. Judging from the locales depicted in his prints and drawings, he travelled widely to such places as Germany, Switzerland, France, Poland, and probably Italy.
Very fine atmospheric impression with margins all around.
