Price £18

An uncompromising artist of extraordinary imaginative power, she has revolutionised the way in which women are represented. This is the UK's most comprehensive retrospective of Paula's work to date.

Open now until 24 October

Since the 1950s, Paula Rego has played a key role in redefining figurative art in the UK and internationally.

This exhibition tells the story of this artist’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.

It features over 100 works, including collage, paintings, large-scale pastels, ink and pencil drawings and etchings. These include early works from the 1950s in which Rego first explored personal as well as social struggle, her large pastels of single figures from the acclaimed Dog Women and Abortion series and her richly layered, staged scenes from the 2000-10s.

This is a unique opportunity to survey, in the city that Rego has lived in and called home for most of her life, the full range of her work.

Exhibition organised by Tate Britain in collaboration with Kunstmuseum Den Haag and Museo Picasso Málaga.
