'A splendidly illustrated study of a great living artist'
Spectator, Martin Gayford’s Books of the Year
'The year’s finest monograph about a female artist… rooted in an often savagely playful brand of storytelling, Rego’s pictures owe as much to literature and folktales as they do to the work of other painters, and Rhys Jones delicately unpacks their mysteries'
'Filled with highlights from her theatrical takes on Portuguese folk tales through to her landmark responses on women’s rights. English professor Deryn Rees-Jones provides insightful commentary throughout'
Artists & Illustrators
'A particularly solid study of the artist’s work and a very refined art book ... [a] remarkable contribution to the study of Rego’s painting ... a rich narrative that combines an overview of Rego’s artistic trajectory with an in-depth analysis of numerous paintings ... an important monograph that will become a significant reference on the work of Paula Rego'
