Catalogue Note

Ana Maria Pacheco is a Brazilian-born sculptor, painter and printmaker. In 1996 she was appointed Associate Artist at the National Gallery, London. In 2015 she was awarded the Mário Pedrosa Award for contemporary artist by the Brazilian Association of Art Critics (Associação Brasileira de Críticos de Arte) in recognition of her outstanding contribution to national culture.

“I regard Virgil’s Aeneid as one of the great texts of western literature and Book VI, describing the descent of Aeneas into the underworld, as the pivot of the epic. Seamus Heaney’s version captures beautifully both the dignity and the pathos of the original”
