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.
