Sherrin who was also artists (a picture by the latter is shown elsewhere on Prolific artist painting Landscapes and beach landscapes. Flourished c1895-1915. This may be a pseudonym for the well-listed artist Benjamin Williams Leader. Sherrin was born in Brentford, Essex, and moved to Ramsgate when he was a boy. Later he lived in Seasalter near Whitstable where he died. Initially he apparently primarily painted seascapes, but later turned mainly to landscapes. 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. A picture of Sandringham was commissioned from him by King George V and hangs in Buckingham Palace. The Imperial War Museum in London also have material related to his work on the design of recruiting posters for the First World War

The painting has been framed in a new English handmade gold frame.
