Daniel Sherrin, Landscape With Cottages & Pond

Daniel Sherrin, Landscape With Cottages & Pond

A peaceful landscape painting with cottages, pond and figures by British painter, Daniel Sherrin (1868-1942).

Sherrin had a fondness for using diagonal paths to draw you closer to the scenery. Note how your eye is drawn towards the bottom left-hand corner and then across the composition, via the sunset, towards the distant woodland.

Daniel Sherrin was born in Brentwood, Essex and was trained by his father, John Sherrin - a flower and still life painter. He was a keen follower of Benjamin Williams Leader (1831-1923) and painted in a similar style. It’s possible that he knew Leader well because Sherrin’s son, Reginald (1891-1971), was trained by him.

The painting is signed in the lower left and housed within a later swept frame.
