THE ART OF J.F. KERNAN
There are over 450 paintings, drawings, and printed tear sheets by J.F. Kernan (1878- 1958) in the collection of the Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Despite this, the artist himself remains something of a mystery. During his long career as an illustrator he did not attain the “household name” status of some other artists, such as Maxfield Parrish or Norman Rockwell. There are no books devoted to his work, and few mentions of him appear in newspapers or magazines of his time. Even so, his illustrations graced the covers and pages of such national magazines as the Saturday Evening Post, Collier’s, Liberty, Country Gentleman, Outdoor Life, Capper’s Farmer, Farm and Home, Country Life, and The Elks. He also produced work for calendar companies, as well as for advertising clients such as Pratt & Lambert, Columbia Manilla Rope, Burger Brewing Company, Stewart Distilling Company, International Harvester, Fisk Tires, and more.
