In Yorkshire, he married and began to earn his living as a humble painter of inn signs and coach insignia. Sketching equestrian subjects in his spare time, Herring’s talent was quickly noticed and he soon found himself painting hunters and racehorses for local patrons. He lived for a time in Newmarket, and then in London, where he may have been tutored by a well-known artist of the time, Abraham Cooper.

Iroquois (1878-1899) was the first American-bred horse to win the Epsom Derby. When four he became a 'bleeder' and thus his temperament changed and he became difficult to train. Pierre Lorillard IV (1883-1901) the American tobacco manufacturer and thoroughbred race horse owner and Iroquois’s owner decided to sent him back to the United States in 1883 where he won at the Stockbridge Cup. In 1886 he was purchased by William Hicks Jackson (1835-1903) a cotton planter, horse breeder, and general in the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War, who transported Iroquois to Belle Meade Plantation where he was a successful stud and had become leading sire by 1892.

A portrait of the racehorse Marske by George Stubbs. Marske was sire of the hugely successful horse Eclipse, and was given to the Duke of Cumberland in exchange for a chestnut Arabian. Following the Duke's death he was bought by William Wildman and put to stud. With Eclipse's unbeatable Marske's stud fee doubled and some doubt was cast as to whether Marske had actually been the sire, Wildman sought to remedy this and commissioned Stubbs to paint him and he became the most successful stud in England. Mask is shown standing in a countryside scene by lake.
Lennox-Boyd: 49; stated he had only seen 3 impressions.

22 plates from 'Portraits of Winning Horses, a Series of Portraits of the Winners of the Derby, Oaks, & St. Leger, From the Year 1842 to 1849. Drawn from Nature and Engraved by Charles Hunt Esqr'. The volume, depicting the winners of the 3 great races over 8 years, was published by Rock Brothers & Payne in 1849. Although the series calls for 24 plates both Siltzer and Lane record only 22 plates, as here: therefore it is probable that only 22 plates were published.

Very scarce lithograph. Sheet size: 360 x 450mm (14¼ x 17½"). Very light mount burn.
A portrait of the racehorse 'Sweet William', standing in profile to the left. Sweet William was bred by William Cornforth of Barforth, near Richmond, Yorkshire, and was bought by Lord Bolingbroke, for whom he won his first race in 1772, at the New Market Spring Meeting. His success brought him to the attention of one of George Stubbs's most important patrons, Richard, 1st Earl Grosvenor, a celebrated breeder and racehorse owner, who promptly purchased Sweet William. The horse remained in Lord Grosvenor's ownership thereafter. The original portrait was one of sixteen paintings which Stubbs executed for the Turf Gallery project.
