Frank Stanley Herring
Flowers in a Vase Southern Oil Painting Modernist Floral Still Life




Modernist still life of flowers. Oil on board 16 x 20 in., 22.25 x 26.25 inches framed. signed lower right. Frank Stanley Herring (1894 - 1966) Frank Stanley Herring was active/lived in Georgia, New York. American artist Frank Herring is known for portrait, cotton genre and figure painting particularly of African-American southern scenes and as a portrait painter. Herring was born in Pennsylvania, and established himself as a painter in New York City after having studied art in Chicago. Shortly after marrying in the early 1920’s, Herring began teaching at the Grand School of Art in NYC in the winters while spending summers in North Carolina. It was here that he met Paul Whitener in 1934, being introduced by Mickey who was at the time being tutored by Herring. As Paul's interest in and talent for painting emerged and grew, Herring supported Mickey's idea that Paul take lessons at the well-respected Ringling School of Art's summer program at Wildacres in Little Switzerland where Mickey herself was both student and model and where Herring among others taught, and Paul productively followed that suggestion. He studied with George Bridgman, Charles Webster Hawthorne, Louis Grell and Harry Stickroth. In 1946 Herring and his wife helped establish the Burnsville Painting Classes. Located in the old Mount Mitchell's Boys camp in Burnsville, N.C., the school grew to national recognition over a 20 year period, continuing until 1966 when Herring died. Herring became known primarily for his water color portraits of blacks in the South. His paintings have been exhibited in the Art Institute of Chicago and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, among others, as well as of course at Hickory Museum of Art.
