Overview

Discussing and illustrating all of Rego’s graphic work spanning half a century, this revised edition offers five new chapters, several revisions, and new Rego images.Many of the greatest artists since Dürer and Rembrandt have used prints to explore their most important ideas. Paula Rego is in this tradition, giving full rein to her imagination in both etching and lithography, and using the media with exuberance to create work that is as disturbing, erotic, and powerful as her paintings.This sumptuously produced book, now expanded and updated and featuring reproductions in color and tritone, discusses and illustrates all of her prints, including unpublished work. The second edition includes chapters on five new series—Moon Eggs, Prince Pig, Wine, Curved Planks, and Beyond Abortion; on works out of series since 2004; and on the influence of playwright Martin McDonagh’s work on Rego. New images, additional entries to the fully illustrated Catalogue Raisonné, and revisions to the chronology, exhibition list, and bibliography make this a unique source of information on a major aspect of this leading artist’s work.
