Oil On Canvas After John Frederick Herring, Sr.

Offered for sale is a 19th c. idyllic oil on canvas of horses in a field after the works of the famous British animal artist, John Frederick Herring, Sr., 1795 - 1865. The horses are posed in a pasture divided by a fence along a gentle stream with a thatched-roof barn in the background. The horses appear to be working animals, carriage horses, equestrian horses, and a beautiful thoroughbred in the foreground for hunting. Herring was himself a lover of horses and they can be found in mostly all of his well-known paintings. Herring was a prolific and highly successful artist and painted a large number of commissions for wealthy endowed landowners. As these animals held a special place in the 19th century household, they were often depicted by their owners as an integral part of the family.

The painting is well done and in very good condition with minor restoration to a tear, and subsequent in-painting of the sky. It is housed in a complementary carved frame, completely restored, and signed in the lower right hand corner.

Size of Frame: 29.75" Length, 23.75 Height
Size of Image: 24" Length, 18" Height.
