This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

John F. Herring was born in Surrey, England in 1795.  For four years he drove the coach, "York and London Highflyer", and painting in his leisure, gained a reputation as the "coachman-painter".

He eventually devoted himself entirely to painting, receiving the only art instruction of his career from Abraham Cooper.  For thirty-three successive years he painted the winners of the races at St. Leger.

He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1826; at the British Institution and the Society of British Artists from 1841-1852.

He died in 1865 at Tunbridge Wells, England.
