Scottish aquatint engraver and painter of seascapes and landscapes John Heaviside Clark, was born in about 1770. Clark exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy between 1801 and 1832. He is not known to have visited Australia, but is known for the ten coloured plates engraved from his drawings by M. Dubourg of Aboriginal and Australian animal studies. It has been suggested that the drawings may have been taken from original sketches by John William Lewin.

The total number of works by Waterloo Clark offered for sale by auction since 1980 is 48, of which 38 (79%) were sold. The highest price recorded for the artist is $48,620 for Climbing Trees sold by Sotheby's in November 1987. This year one work has been offered for sale. Works by Waterloo Clark are held by the National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of NSW and Art Gallery of Western Australia.
