This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Thurloe Connolly was born in Cork.  He worked in an office from leaving school until 1941, spending his spare time painting and writing poetry.  Once he began painting full time his work was exhibited widely: in 1943 at the IELA, at the 1944 Exhibition of Subjective Art in Dublin, and in 1945 at the first show in the Dublin Painters Gallery. He had a one man show at Victor Waddington's Gallery in 1949, and a series of exhibitions in America including Boston and New York, as well as in England, Holland and Sweden.

A major retrospective was held in Dublin in 1993.

Initially his work was figurative and romantic but a change of direction in 1948 showed a growing interest in pattern and abstraction.  His influences were eclectic, from Klee and graffiti, to Oceanic and African art. His works from 1952 and 1953 were purely abstract, all titled Painting.
