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.
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.
