Rodolphus Hannigan, Sculptor

(fl. 1849-1861)


From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was trained in the Royal Dublin Society's School, where he won several prizes between 1848 and 1852, and was admitted as a student in the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1849. He exhibited several works in the Cork Exhibition in 1852 and in the Dublin Exhibition of 1853. His statue of "The Infant Bacchus" belonged to Mr. John Johnston of 28 Kildare Street, and was sent by him to the Dublin Exhibition in 1861. Hannigan did not succeed as a sculptor and drifted into the marble-masons' yards where he found employment.
