I found this photo online. It probably dates from the 1940s, a couple of valleys over from Brokeback Mountain.

Children at Tuam

Children at Tuam

Last year a septic tank was found underground in what was the back garden of a mother-and-baby home for unwed women and their illegitimate children in Tuam, Ireland. The remains of as many as  700 neglected children were in the tank. The NYT ran a story on this discovery: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/03/world/europe/ireland-tuam-mother-and-baby-home.html
The photo from which I made this painting is likely from the 1950s and appears to be a first communion portrait of some of the children who at least made it to 7 years old.
