This California artist passed away in 2015 at the age of 94, but he has left a lasting legacy of artwork that can be found in thousands of galleries across the world. A well-known visual artist and illustrator, Herrero’s simplistic and naïve portraits of farm life, cats and landscapes were instantly recognizable and endearing to his fans and collectors.
