Terence Flanagan was a landscape painter born in Enniskillen
1929, Co. Fermanagh. Whilst still in school, he attended evening classes taught
by Kathleen Bridle who in turn introduced him to watercolours. He then attended the Belfast College of Art from 1949-1953, a place he would later teach at until
his retirement in 1984. The subject matter of his paintings is mainly
landscapes from Fermanagh and Donegal.
Having been established as one of the most successful painters in Ireland, in 1970, Flanagan was commissioned to design the postage stamp for Ulster 71’.
Flanagan’s main exhibitions were held at the Tom Caldwell Gallery, Belfast, David Hendricks Gallery in Dublin and the two Art Councils of Ireland.
