John Frederick Herring Jnr. was a painter of sporting and animal subjects in oil and watercolour. His style was very similar to that of his father, John Frederick Herring Snr.

Herring Jnr. painted many horse portraits in exquisite detail. In addition he painted numerous charming small-scale studies of cows, rabbits, pigs, goats, birds and other animals. He is renowned for his finely detailed farmyard scenes. He had a preference for smaller canvases enabling greater out-put. Very occasionally and often for the purpose of exhibiting at the major academies, he would turn to the larger canvas. Although more time consuming, they brought greater recognition and with it more lucrative commissions.

Herring exhibited at the Royal Academy, British Institution and Suffolk Street where he exhibited some fifty-three works.

John Jnr. married an artist called Kate Rolfe who also exhibited at the Royal Academy and Suffolk Street. Herring spent the latter part of his life at Fulbourn near Cambridge.
