ABOUT THE ARTIST
John Frederick Herring, Sr. (12 September 1795 23 September 1865),also known as John Frederick Herring I, was a painter, sign maker and coachman in Victorian England.He painted the 1848 "Pharoah's Chariot Horses" (archaic spelling "Pharoah"). He amended his signature "SR" (senior) in 1836, with the growing fame of his teenage son John Frederick Herring Jr.
The first eighteen years of Herring's life were spent in London, where his greatest interests were drawing and horses.In the year 1814, at the age of 18, he moved to Doncaster in the north of England, arriving in time to witness the Duke of Hamilton's "William" win the St. Leger Stakes horserace. By 1815, Herring had married Ann Harris; his sons John Frederick Herring, Jr
In Doncaster, England, Herring was employed as a painter of inn signs and coach insignia on the sides of coaches.
In 1845, Herring was appointed Animal Painter to HRH the Duchess of Kent, followed by a subsequent commission from the ruling Queen Victoria.
In 1853, Herring moved to rural Kent in the southeast of England and stopped painting horse portraits.
He spent the last 12 years of his life at Meopham Park near Tonbridge, where he lived as a country squire.
He then broadened his subject matter by painting agricultural scenes and narrative pictures, as well as his better known sporting works of hunting, racing and shooting.

The paintings of Herring were very popular,and many were engraved, including his 33 winners of the St. Leger and his 21 winners of the Derby.
