Waterloo was born in Lille in 1609 but appears to have travelled to Holland at an early age, staying in Amsterdam, Leeuwarden and Utrecht. He was married in 1640 in Zevenbergen and purchased a fine small chateau near Utrecht.



His works are rare and seldom signed. They recall the paintings of the important landscape painter Jacob van Ruisdael as well as Jan Vermeer van Haarlem, the elder, A Verboom and Jan Looten. He specialised in brown-toned forest landscapes in hilly country, sometimes with a calm expanse of water. Jan Weenix sometimes contributed figures to Waterloo’s compositions. He is especially highly regarded as a draughtsman and is known to have executed well over 100 engravings.



He worked over some panoramic etchings previously ascribed to Hercules Seghers but probably by Johan Ruysher.



Museums where examples of his work can be found include Amsterdam, Bordeaux, Florence, La Fère and Munich.
