Description

One of a range of fine art mugs depicting famous animal and equestrian paintings. This mug depicts a typical 19th century English rural scene – “Farmyard Scene” (1870) by the British landscape and animal artist John Frederick Herring Jr (1820-1907).

John F. Herring Jr. was born in Doncaster, South Yorkshire to the well-known 19th-century artist John Frederick Herring Sr. (1795–1865), who at the time, was considered one of England’s great Sporting and Equestrian artists, patronized by the English aristocracy. The father’s mastery of the brush, and popularity with the nobility, served his son, Herring Jr., well.

Early on, Herring Jr. was exposed to fine painting and wealthy patrons.

Farmyard scenes featuring draught-horses amid a litter of straw, with a supporting cast of pigs, poultry, ducks or pigeons, were the preferred subjects of John Frederick Herring senior in later life, particularly after his retirement to the Kentish countryside in the early 1840s.

The continuing popularity of Herring’s farmyard scenes encouraged imitators. Foremost among these was the artist’s eldest son, John Frederick Herring junior.

The subject painting is a part of the Tate Britain collection, United Kingdom.

In white ceramic with printing on both sides, this is an 11oz mug, that holds around 0.33 litres of coffee, chocolate and tea. Durable and with a print made to last, this mug is a perfect gift for who you love, and for you.
