Daniel Sherrin, The Elder (1868-1940) - Original Signed Gouache Painting "Scottish Highlands"  - - image 1 of 15

This painting truly makes me happy. Perhaps it is that I love really fine impressionist watercolors and gouaches and pastels.
The cattle so subtly painted in the distance, along with some birds in the sky. Subtle depictions can be more meaningful at times than something that is so blatant you feel the artist is afraid you won't discern it any other way. Art is so personal. Some appeal to you and some do not. It seems that many others agree with me as to this artist's works. His high reported public sale was $16,200.00.

Daniel Sherrin, The Elder (English 1868-1940)

He was born in Brentwood, Essex, England in 1868, the son of John Sherrin, R.I. (1819-1896) who specialized in Still Life subjects. Daniel studied under his father and became a pupil of B.W. Leader, the well known landscape artist and a member of the "Williams" family. He lived for a while on the East Coast of England near Whitstable and although primarily a landscape artist, he also painted along the shores of Suffolk and Norfolk.

In his early period he painted sailing ships very similar to those of Thomas Somerscales and early Montague Dawson's, later he turned to landscapes and it is for these subjects he has become well known.

It is also accepted that as well as painting under his own name Daniel Sherrin, he occasionally painted under the pseudonym of 'L Richards' and 'Horace Gallon'.

His paintings were often used for book illustrations and a scene titled In the Highlands, depicting highland cattle by a loch, can be seen in a book titled British Highways and Byways from a Motor Car, by Thomas D. Murphy, which was published in 1908.

He was commissioned by King George V. to paint Sandringham and this painting still hangs in Buckingham Palace.

During the first World War he did valuable work on the design of posters in connection with recruitment for Kitchener's Army and this work is in the archives of the Imperial War museum.

His son Reginald Daniel Sherrin (1891-1971) was also an artist, who painted in watercolor and specialized in moorland and coastal views.
