Harry Kernoff RHA

Harry Kernoff RHA

Henry Kernoff (1900-1974) was born in London and was not only a talented painter, but also a wood cutter and lithographer. His family moved to Dublin in 1914 where he studied at Dublin Metropolitan School of Art and won the Taylor Scholarship. He was employed as a woodworker for a time which led to his production of woodcuts, but also took influence from Seán Keating, painting Irish landscapes, genre scenes and portraits.

He exhibited regularly with the Royal Hibernian Academy from 1926, the Water Colour Society of Ireland and a variety of international and Irish galleries throughout his life. He had published multiple woodcuts in his own books and illustrated a number of other publications, including Patricia Lynch’s A Storyteller’s Childhood (1947) and Tinker Boy (1955). He was made a member of the United Arts Club in Dublin (1974) and a memorial exhibition was held in his honour at the Hugh Lane Municipal Gallery (1976).
