TP ('Terry') Flanagan (1929-2011) was born and grew up in Enniskillen. His early interest in painting was nurtured by the artist and teacher Kathleen Bridle (1897-1989) whose other famous pupil was William Scott (1913-1989). Throughout his career, Flanagan consistently turned to the lake lands of Fermanagh for inspiration, as well as to the more rugged landscape of neighbouring Sligo and Donegal.
Fermanagh County Museum has recently acquired twenty-two paintings by TP Flanagan, enabling the representation of key themes and decades within the artist's work. For an overview of the new collection, read Dickon Hall's essay here
