Following a fire in 1978 at the Museum of Modern Art (MAM), Rio de Janeiro, the cultural officers of the consulates of
the European Union in that city recommended to their respective governments that donations of works by European
artists be made to the MAM (poŽn).
Ireland was one of the donor countries. The Cultural Relations Committee of the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs,
Dublin, arranged through the Honorary Consulate General of Ireland in Rio for the following works by Louis Le Brocquy
to be presented to MAM in 1980. The works have never been seen by the public.
