Seán Keating: Art, Politics and Building the Irish Nation is an outstanding examination of Keating’s seventy-year working life as an artist, art teacher, broadcaster, and public commentator. Based on extensive research and previously unavailable archival material, it is the first ever full-scale work on one of Ireland’s most well known yet controversial artists, richly illustrated in colour. Offering a comprehensive and well-balanced portrait, and revealing previously unknown insights into his life, O’Connor discusses his difficulties at the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art, the networks of people he knew – Harry Clarke, William Orpen, Robert Flaherty, Micheál MacLiammóir – the projects he engaged with, and his sometimes self-destructive relationships with those whom he could not respect. This ground-breaking study explores Keating’s expansive career, from his overtly political paintings of the War of Independence to the artist’s engagement with the Aran Islands and his recording of the industrialisation of the new state, but also his controversial articles and broadcasts in the 1930-40s. Richly illustrated with over 200 colour paintings, sketches, photographs,

Published by the Irish Academic Press (2013). Richly illustrated in colour with over 200 paintings, sketches, and photographs, many previously unpublished.

Kernoff, Harry Aaron ARHA (1900 – 1974)  

The son of Jewish parents of mixed Russian and Spanish descent London born Harry Kernoff moved to Dublin at the age of fourteen and spent his early years as an apprentice in his father’s furniture business.

His artistic training began with night classes at the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art. Upon winning the prestigious Taylor Scholarship in 1923, he became a day student and henceforth devoted all his energies to art, working also for a time on designing stage sets in the company of actors such as Mícheál MacLíammóir and Hilton Edwards. Some time after this he visited Paris, staying for a month painting and sketching. In 1926 Kernoff began exhibiting at the RHA, continuing to do so nearly every year for the next five decades.
Influenced by Seán Keating, Kernoff painted the Irish landscape, genre scenes, and portraits and is primarily remembered for his sympathetic interest in Dublin and its people. He depicted street and pub scenes, as well as Dublin landmarks with sympathy and understanding. This is particularly evident in his woodcuts.

Kirby, Elaine

I am a self-taught landscape artist specialising in oils. From Westport, County Mayo, I adore painting the local landscape and love to hike regularly over the mountains and hills of the Atlantic wild lands.

I have a small studio in my house where I live with my two cats who keep me company while I paint.

I accept commissions so if you have a photo of your favourite place.

All pieces shown here are my original work.
