Hello, I'm making an investigation about Richard Waller, connected with my History of art studies in the National Academy of Arts in Bulgaria. In the public records of Sofia Art Gallery, I came across a portrait, signed with his name. The portrait is drawn in 1852, and it displays a woman called Wilhelmine. I would like to send you photos of the portrait and the inscriptions on the back, if this is possible. That's how you'll manage to see it and say if this is Richard W. for real. I would be very thankful if you have any additional info about R.W., because everything I have is his biography from Skipton's history and his portraits in BBC website. It is a problem that this issue hasn't been disguisseed in a while and I can not manage to open many of the links. I would really appreciate your help, if this does not bother you :) Thank you in advance.

Richard Waller was living as a boarder with George Spencer in the 1881 Census at 23 Port Street Skipton. I have Richard Waller's death cert and G Spencer is named as the informant and present at death.

I have been doing some research on my great granduncle; Richard Waller (1811-1882) who was a painter and inventor, I have done a fair bit of research but there are some things that I am not having much luck with or have hit a brick wall with.

Hi there,  I have a painting that is signed R Waller 1873.  I don't know anything about him, other than what you have written on this Forum and I cannot find any similar work to this on the internet.  I have put photographs of the painting on my website http://janebuchanan.co.uk/r-waller-painting
Do you think that is his signature?

Regards
Jane

Hi there,

Had a bit of trouble replying to your message.

The painting belonged to my Paternal Grandmother who then passed to my Dad then to me. 
That's all I know.

Regards
Jane
