Paula Rego (b. 1935) is a Portuguese-British artist whose widely celebrated work is incisive, uncanny, and deliberately discomforting. From her early painted collages to more recent monumental narrative paintings, from prints inspired by nursery rhymes to politically charged pastels and portraits, Rego has dedicated herself to art that explores, and even exposes, the volatility of human emotions and relationships.
This book is produced in cooperation with the artist and Marlborough Fine Art, London.
