The cruel stories of Paula Rego at the Musée de l’Orangerie

Join in on our exclusive tour of The cruel stories of Paula Rego with Cecile Debray, curator of the exhibit and director of the Musee de l’Orangerie, on Tuesday Nov 13, (the day the museum is closed to the general public) The only female artist in the London Group, Dame Paula Rego set herself apart with her strongly figurative, literary, incisive and singular work. Dark narratives, her paintings seem to be taken from a cruel tale and evoke women’s issues in strange scenes, going against social codes.

Born in Lisbon in 1935 Rego fled the stifling political climate, attending the Slade School in London from 1952, and in the 60s and 70s living a vibrant artistic life between the 2 countries. International recognition came in the 1980s with retrospective exhibits at the Gulbenkien Foundation in Lisbon and the Serpentine Gallery in London and in the 90s at the Saatchi and Marlborough galleries.
Much of her work –paintings, drawings and etchings—is housed in the Casa das Historias museum in Lisbon. The National Museum of Women in the Arts presented a full career retrospective of Rego’s work in 2008.
