Paula Rego, b.1935

The Night Crow1992

Children and children’s fairytales are the subject of Paula Rego’s prints in the IMMA Collection but the world she evokes is full of Gothic horror. Her nursery rhythm characters offer disconcerting reminders of the difficulties that inhabit childhood. Rego’s ‘The Night Crow’ is a threatening predatory creature.

About the Artist

Paula Rego b.1935

Born in Lisbon, Portugal in 1935, Dame Paula Rego trained at the Slade School of Fine Art, London. Rego is celebrated for her bold and intense paintings, drawings and prints, which intertwine the private and the public, the intimate and the political, the real and the imagined, combining autobiographical elements with stories from literature, folklore, and mythology, references to earlier art, and observations on the contemporary world.
