Fresh example of these lovely hand-coloured views. George Hering (1805–1879), landscape painter, was the younger son of the bookbinder, Charles Hering. Hering habitually painted Italian landscapes with bright, cloudless skies, often highly finished. In 1836 he first exhibited at the Royal Academy, sending The Ruins of the Palace of the Cæsars, Rome, and was a regular contributor thereafter to the academy and the British Institution, exhibiting landscapes of Rome, Naples, Genoa, Venice, La Spezia, Como, Piedmont, and Monte Rosa.
