Member's price $ 72.00

Since the 1950s, Paula Rego has played a key role in redefining figurative art in the UK and internationally. An uncompromising artist of extraordinary imaginative power, she has revolutionised the way in which women are represented. This stunning voulme tells the story of Rego's extraordinary life, highlighting the personal nature of much of her work and the socio-political context in which it is rooted. It also reveals the artist's broad range of references, from comic strips to history painting. The book reflects the richness of Rego's work, from the sociopolitical context to the biographical, from her many literary references to her vast knowledge and referencing of key historical paintings from the Western tradition.
