This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Portrait painter, James Herring was born in London on January 12, 1794.  In 1805, he emigrated with his family to the United States and spent his youth in New Jersey and New York City.

He began work as a school teacher and then a distiller and later became a successful portrait and profile painter in New Jersey.  In 1822, he opened a studio in New York City.  In 1830 he established a circulating library in New York City.

Herring is primarily known as the publisher of The National Portrait Gallery (1834-39) and as the founder in 1839 of the Apollo Association, later known as the American Art-Union.   The purpose of the Apollo Association and its successor was to promote the fine arts by exhibitions and reproductions of paintings.   It was a concept originated in Germany.

The artist spent his last years in Paris and died there October 8, 1867.
