By J. Mcdonald TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 5 Dec. 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent and quite comprehensive monograph on one of the foremost figurative artists working in the UK today - Paula Rego.

I remember this Phaidon book when it first came out and it was an impressive volume then; this new, revised edition now includes a selection of her brilliantly executed pastel paintings including the "Dog Women" and "The Ostriches" series, and an in-depth study of the mural "Crivelli`s Garden" made for the brasserie of the new Sainsbury Wing of the National Gallery.
There are 253 illustrations with 188 of those in colour; good sized illustrations, beautifully reproduced.
All phases of Rego`s fascinating career are covered; a highly versatile artist, she has worked in a range of media - oils, collage, acrylic, pastel and printmaking.
The text is illuminating and does much to explain the ideas behind her personal visual language - the Portuguese folk tales, fairy tales and wider cultural influences.

This is without doubt the book to have if you are interested in Rego, it functions as both a fine introduction to the artist and a good reference work.
*A third edition of this book published in 2006 is currently available*
