Exhibition has now closed

Continues to 22 January 2006 Paula Rego has been described as the best-known and best-loved woman artist in Britain today. This new retrospective exhibition shows an enormous range of work, from her earliest ‘excursions’ in etching in the mid-1950s to a recent highly acclaimed series of lithographs on the subject of Jane Eyre. This is the first time all Paula Rego’s prints are shown together; it demonstrates her renown as a maker of provocative, challenging and emotionally charged images.

includes almost 200 works; it is a testament to Paula Rego’s amazingly inventive imagination and a tribute to
her exceptional achievement in contemporary printmaking. Related rare pieces are also exhibited: hand-coloured
unique proofs, drawings and a small book she made for her four-year-old granddaughter which metamorphoses into the Nursery Rhyme series.

The exhibition is organised by Marlborough Graphics in association with the Talbot Rice Gallery Edinburgh.
