This chapter offers an exploration of the work of Harry Aaron Kernoff (1900–74), a migrant artist working in Dublin from the early 1920s onwards. Although working in the same period as Yeats, Kernoff’s artistic technique and choice of subject matter contrasts with his older peer, offering a different view of everyday life in twentieth-century Dublin. The early sections of this chapter will explore Kernoff’s work in this ‘jazz age’, including his earliest depictions of everyday life in Dublin, and his involvement with groups such as the Radical Club and Toto Cogley’s Cabaret. From this, the chapter will then consider Kernoff’s leftist politics, his focus on the city’s labourers and dockers, and finally, his later pastoral works.
