The Pago-Pago (1969) artworks were formerly acquired by Dr. Brian Aylward, an Irish lecturer who was living in Malaysia and worked at the Department of Chemistry in the University of Malaya from 1968 until 1971. Dr Aylward was a dear friend and regularly visited Latiff Mohidin at his studio and residence in Seksyen 14, Petaling Jaya. When he had extra cash to spare, he would purchase Latiff’s artworks. So during one of those ‘drop in’ occasions, he purchased these two Pago-Pago (1969) artworks directly from the artist himself.
