The National Self Portrait Collection of Ireland at the University of Limerick has its origins with the purchase of fifteen self-portraits in 1977. In 1982 a Board of Trustees was appointed to establish and maintain a national collection of self-portraits. Since then each year a small number of practicing artists are invited to add their portrait to the collection.
