Andy Flanigan Serigraph "Summer Car"

Item Details

Anthony “Andy” Flanigan (Pennsylvania, 1899 – 2004)
Summer Car, late 20th century
Serigraph on paper
Signed to the lower right
Numbered 5/150

Provenance
From the collection of P.J. McArdle.

Living over the span of three centuries, a fact he liked to boast, Andy Flanigan worked for the Pittsburgh Railways, later Port Authority, for 46 years. He first began teaching himself to paint in the 1970s and would continue for the rest of his life, becoming famous in the town of Brentwood where he lived. He was affectionately known as “Pap” to his many friends and family, a name that would spur the pun, “Pap Art,” in response to the Pop Art movement. He did not have his first solo exhibition until the age of 100 when folk art collector and promoter, Pat McArdle, discovered the artist and set up an exhibition of his work at Gallery in the Square in Shadyside. McArdle also helped to get one of Flanigan’s works into the 2002 Outsider art show at the Sen. John Heinz Pittsburgh Regional History Center.
