    The MOCA Portfolio with prints by Vija Celmins, Ann Hamilton, Brice Marden, Martin Puryear, Ed Ruscha, and Richard Serra was originally intended to include an etching by Lucien Freud, however the portfolio, published in 2000, was ahead of Freud's timeline for the edition. MOCA later gifted the etching to collectors in appreciation.
