John Vine (1808 – 1867)

John Vine, like so many itinerant artists of his day, received no formal training in art; nevertheless he built up a fine reputation for painting the horses, cattle and dogs of the Essex gentry and farmers.

John was born and died in Colchester and exhibited a painting of a farmyard scene at the Suffolk Street Galleries in London in 1844 as well as exhibiting a painting of a sheep at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1855.
