Portrait and Landscape Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Nothing is known of the life of this artist except that he was trained in the Dublin Society's Schools, where he won prizes in 1815 and 1818. In Hardiman's "History of Galway," 1820, are engravings by J. Martyn (q.v.), after drawings by him, viz., "S. W. View of the Town of Galway," "Lynch's Castle," "Church of St. Nicholas," and "The Court House"; also a small wood-cut by Clayton. In the possession of the Grace family are portraits of Oliver J. Dowel Grace, and of Frances, his wife, both signed P. Duggan pinxt. These are engraved in the "Memoirs of the Family of Grace." In the same work are views of "Mantua House," "Carney Castle," "Jerpoint Abbey," "Ballylinch Castle," and "Brittas Castle," engraved from his drawings.
