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.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
