Lot Essay

Waite was born in Leatherhead, and devoted his life to painting pictures of the Surrey countryside. The village of Peaslake lay within a trap-ride of Waite's studio at Abinger Hammer, and was a favourite subject. Similar records of the Surrey Weald were simultaneously being executed by Helen Allingham, Myles Birket Foster and Benjamin Williams Leader. Waite exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1878 and 1919.
