T P Flanagan – Painter of Light & Landscape || S B Kennedy

This is a comprehensive account of the life and work of one of Ireland’s foremost watercolourists of the twentieth century. Although he also painted portraits and still lifes, landscapes were Flanagan’s main interest and he rendered them mostly through tonal relationships. Although he disliked abstraction, his work is strongly founded around shape and colour, from which natural forms tend to emerge rather than being depicted directly. The results are thoughtful, philosophical and conceptual works which betray the calm of the deep meditation that went into their creation.

Having both generous illustrations and an integrated text tells the full story of what is effectively a journey towards a kind of spiritual fulfilment.
