Reginald Daniel Sherrin, On The Stour

A fine early 20th-century landscape painting by British painter, Reginald Daniel Sherrin (1891-1971). It depicts a picturesque view, which is probably on the River Stour in East Anglia.

Reginald Daniel was the son of the accomplished landscape artist, Daniel Sherrin (1869-1940). He was born near Whitstable in Kent and served in both World Wars - working in a munitions factory in Rochester during WWII. In 1953, he moved to Starcross in Devon, which is a county that often inspired him.

The painting is signed in the bottom left, inscribed on the reverse, and housed within a beautiful later frame.
