Reginald Daniel SHERRIN

Reginald Daniel SHERRIN

His father was Daniel Sherrin, also an artist. He was born at Seasalter, near Whitstable, Kent, on 5th April, 1891. Sherrin served in the First World War; in the Second he worked in a munitions factory in Rochester.

Finding that his pictures sold easily, he did not hold exhibitions of his paintings, and established his reputation with moorland and coastal scenes in gouache, in a style resembling that of Frederick John WIDGERY. He painted frequently in Cornwall. Sometimes he used pseudonyms, such as J WHITELY and DA NIEL. Sherrin moved to Devon in 1952, and died in 1971.
