The painter and architect Frank Waller studied drawing at the Free Academy of the City of New York from about 1857 to 1861. He first exhibited at the National Academy of Design in 1870 and later that year went to Rome and studied with John Gadsby Chapman. Afterr touring Egypt with the artist Edwin White in 1872, Waller became noted for his romantic views of archaeological ruins and native life along the Nile. Waller studied at the National Academy with Lemuel Wilmarth during the early 1870s. In 1878 he returned to Europe and visited a number of art academies in preparation for writing his Report on Art Schools (1879). Waller exhibited at the Brooklyn Art Association, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the National Academy. He became a professional architect during the middle 1880s and thereafter painted as a hobby. Waller remained interested in archaeology and served as a local honorary secretary of the Egypt Exploration Society from 1897 to 1902, and later was a member of the Ur Exploration Society.
