John Frederick Herring the Younger is celebrated today for his paintings of equestrian, farmyard, and countryside scenes. He was the son of the artist John Frederick Herring, one of England’s most famed painters of sporting scenes. The popularity of Herring Sr’s work encouraged many imitators, foremost among them Herring Jr, who catered unscrupulously to public demand, painting many works in his father’s style.

The oil on canvas painting, contained within a giltwood frame with a name plate reading ‘John Frederick Herring’, is signed lower left ‘J.F. Herring’.
