About

This original oil painting by Daniel Sherrin under his pseudonym “L.Richards”, dating from around the 1920s, is presented and supplied in a mid 20th century frame (which is shown in these photographs). The frame dimensions are 35cm high x 66cm wide. the visible painting dimensions are 29cm high x 60cm wide (11.42inches high x 23.62inches wide). The painting is signed lower right. The painted surface and canvas have benefitted from some restoration including five small hole repairs, cleaning and conservation, which took place in 2009 on our instructions. The repairs are permanent and have been professionally performed by a recognized conservation restorer. The repairs are not visible when viewed from the front but are evident on the rear. 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. Daniel Sherrin was a prolific and accomplished artist in oils of landscape and marine scenes. Today his work is sought after, capturing images of Whitstable, Herne Bay and other fine pictures he was commissioned for around the country. Daniel Sherrin was born in Brentford, Essex, in 1868, the son of John Sherrin RI., the well-known flower and still life painter. There is no record of him receiving a formal art training but it is probable that he studied with his father. The family moved to Ramsgate, when Daniel was a young boy, and his father died there in 1896. Daniel Sherrin later moved to Seasalter, near Whitstable, Kent, and died there on 26th January 1940. The artistic talent was carried to a third generation for his son Reginald Sherrin also became an artist. Sherrin painted a wide range of subjects, usually in oils, but sometimes also on paper. He was able to emulate the style of several popular artists of the time. It is thought that he may have painted as a pupil of Benjamin W Leader, and was certainly able to paint rural landscapes in his style. He could also paint marine scenes after Montague Dawson and river scenes in watercolour after Stuart Lloyd. His paintings were sometimes used for book illustrations and engravings and a scene entitled “In the Highlands” can be seen in “British Highways and Byways from a Motor Car” by Thomas D. Murphy published in 1908. 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. He also painted under the pseudonym of L Richards, particularly around the 1920s. Sherrin and his wife Jess lived at 'Westbrook' in the newly developing area of Joy Lane in Whitstable. He was quite a character in the community of Whitstable, known for settling his bills with a painting, yet being a great benefactor to many local charities, and for his gentle humour which poked fun at those in authority. He had a studio in Whitstable and also in London. He insisted on wearing the most outrageous chequed plus-fours and his love of beer was legendary. When Sherrin believed strongly in something he used all his skills as an artist, local celebrity and sportsman to best effect in promoting the cause. He started the Seasalter Fire Brigade single-handed (he was the only fireman!) and in his way assisted Whitstable in its transition from seaside village into a modern town of the age. He gave out leaflets promoting his fire-brigade, warning people to give at least one week's notice of the fire unless it was in close proximity to a public house when he would attend instantly! 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 and posted it up about the town at this time. There is an original of this at the Buffs Museum in Canterbury and the Imperial War Museum also have material related to his work on this. This poster and his many local speeches were instrumental in getting over 2,000 men to sign up, including his own son, Reg. Sherrin received a personal commendation from Lord Kitchener for his vital work towards the war effort. When white lines were first painted along the High Street of Whitstable for vehicular guidance Sherrin decided to add his own, curving them around into the bar at the Bear & Key. This, apparently, was to guide him and other pub-crawlers as they left the bar at the Duke of Cumberland. Sherrin once sold a painting to a local undertaker. He decided to take payment in the form of a coffin. This he used in many of his pranks over the next 30 years, and he was buried in it after he died on January 26th 1940 aged 71. Sherrin was one of the most prolific artists of his period. Many of his paintings were reproduced as prints, but his originals are now becoming very collectable.
