Shalders was a painter in oils and watercolours. He was born and lived in Portsmouth. He became one of the finest exponents of the Victorian landscape. His subjects were mostly summery views of Wales, Ireland, Surrey and occasionally the Continent. He had an excellent feel for nature and light effects and his skies can justly be viewed with those of Constable in brilliance and aerial quality. He also painted genre scenes and animals. Shalders used the Old Master effect of glazing layers of paint which gives a tremendous depth to his pictures.
His paintings show affinities with other artists from the south west, William Shayer, F.R. Lee and George Cole.
He exhibited his work at the Royal Academy from 1846 to 1862 and also at the British Institute, Suffolk Street and the New Watercolour Society of which he was a member.
Shalders died in London of a stroke in 1873.
A benefit sale for his children was held at Christie’s, 9 March 1874; this was a mixed sale and only four works were by Shalders.
