Paula Rego: An Enduring Journey

Paula Rego: An Endur­ing Jour­ney focus­es on Rego’s print­mak­ing oeu­vre, bring­ing togeth­er almost fifty years of graph­ic works.

We are delighted to be hosting an exhibition from the late Dame Paula Rego RA, one of the most important figurative artists of her generation, who placed women’s lives and stories at the centre of her work. Paula Rego: An Enduring Journey focuses on Rego’s printmaking oeuvre, and will include highlights from her almost fifty years of graphic works, which explore the themes of power, rebellion, sexuality and gender, grief and poverty. On display will be thirty-two prints, which come directly from the artist’s estate, and will be shown together with a group of the newly editioned prints from plates drawn before and set aside until now.

Over the course of her career, Rego produced a profound and ground-breaking body of prints. The work not only possesses the extraordinary imaginative power of her paintings but reflects the innovative possibilities of the medium through her experimentation with etching, lithography and aquatint, often employing hand-colouring in the process.
