DUGGAN, PETER PAUL

(d. 1861)

Portrait Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was born in Ireland, and about 1810 while still at an early age went to America, where he practised as an artist. His work consisted chiefly of portraits in crayons and occasionally in oil. He was for some time professor of drawing in the New York Academy, but was obliged to resign this position and retire from the practice of his profession on account of ill health. In 1845 he sent from America a portrait to the Royal Hibernian Academy. On his retirement he went to England, and afterwards to Paris, where he died on the 15th of October, 1861.
