Butler's works became constant additoins to exhibitions as the National Academy, the Pennsylvania Academy, the Corcoran Gallery, and the Boston Art Club. His diverse entries reflected his multiple addresses, with oils and watercolors of Mexico, California, Maine, and Massachusetts coastlines. While these seascapes are often compared to those of Frederick J. Waugh, Butler was a true Renaissance man, not dedicated to one sole subject matter, but working as a noted portrait artist – Thomas Moran and Andrew Carnegie were among his sitters – and more surprisingly, a painter of astronomy.
