Paula Rego RA
Born in Lisbon, Portugal, in 1935 Dame Paula Rego, is a highly celebrated painter, illustrator and printmaker, whose visceral and unsettling works are notoriously challenging. Rego has lived in Britain since 1951, studying painting at the Slade School of Fine Art, London, her career as an artist spans half a century. Rego’s style has evolved from abstract towards representational, and she has favoured pastels over oils for much of her career. Her work often reflects aspects of feminism and is inspired by literature, folk-themes, myths and fairytales from her native Portugal and from Britain, as well as cartoons and religious texts.
