Herring Jr, John Frederick

John Frederick Herring Jr. was the son of the well-known nineteenth-century artist John Frederick Herring, Sr. who at the time, was viewed as one of England's great sporting and equestrian artists. The father's mastery of the brush and popularity with the nobility exposed his son to fine art and wealthy patrons early on.

John Frederick Herring Jr. developed a love for painting from his early exposure to art, a passion also shared by his two brothers Charles and Benjamin. Three of the four brothers also became artists, painting in the same style as their father, often teaming up on a single painting.

Herring Jr. profited from his father's popularity and name with the British nobility and his sporting and animal paintings also became popular. In the years after 1836, John Frederick Herring, Sr., feeling threatened by his son John Frederick Herring, Jr.’s painting ability and growing popularity, started signing his name on the paintings with "SR" at the end, so people would not confuse the two.

John Frederick Herring Jr. continued painting, in the tradition of his father, but, as his artistic ability improved, his style also changed, he loosened his brushwork and widened his landscape views. The placement of farm animals along the banks of a stream or within a farmyard was characteristic of his works.
