Available for sale from Big Sky Fine Art; this original oil painting by Daniel Sherrin under his pseudonym “L.Richards”, dating from around the 1920s.
The painting is presented and supplied in a mid 20th century frame (which is shown in these photographs). The painted surface and canvas have benefitted from professional restoration including a small hole repair, cleaning and conservation, which took place in 2009 on our instructions. The repair is permanent and has been professionally performed by a recognised conservation restorer. The repair is not visible when viewed from the front. The canvas is lined. This antique painting is now in very good condition, commensurate with its age. It wants for nothing and is supplied ready to hang and display.
The painting is signed lower right.
Daniel Sherrin was an accomplished English artist from an artistic family. Both his father and son were also artists. He was one of the most prolific artists of his day and many of his paintings were reproduced as prints, so his originals are now becoming very collectable. He did not exhibit in London but preferred to work directly under contract for a gallery, painting the subjects and styles that they required. His most famous commission is a painting of Sandringham which was commissioned by King George V and hangs in Buckingham Palace. Sherrin had studios in Whitstable, where he lived and was well known and loved as a local character, and also in London. During the Great War he served in France until he was invalided home. He also helped to design the infamous WW1 recruitment poster featuring Lord Kitchener. This poster and his many local speeches were instrumental in getting over 2,000 men to enlist, including his own son. Sherrin received a personal commendation from Lord Kitchener for his vital work towards the war effort.
