This revised paperback edition of Harry Kernoff: The Little Genius updates the first full-length biography of one of Ireland’s leading artists. Born in London, Harry Kernoff moved to Dublin in 1914 and from 1923 until his death in 1974 was a full-time artist when it was neither ‘profitable nor fashionable’. Against the odds, Harry Kernoff has left a more encompassing visual record of the Irish experience during the twentieth century than any contemporary painter through his empathic interest in the ordinary people, and especially rank-and-file Dubliners.
