John Frederick Herring, Jr. (1815-1907)

John Frederick Herring, Jr. (1815-1907)

John F. Herring Jr. was born in Doncaster, England, and was the third generation of notable sporting painters. He was trained by his father (J. F. Herring Sr), undoubtedly benefitting from his father’s position as a well-established painter for many members of the British nobility. John F. Herring Jr. took after his father’s subject matter too, becoming well known for his paintings of hunting and farmyard scenes. Early in his career he collaborated with the landscape painter, Alexander F. Rolfe, and was introduced to Kate Rolfe, also an artist whom he later married. He exhibited widely, at the Royal Academy and the British Institute between 1863 and 1873, and was made a member of the Royal Academy in 1864.
