Paula Rego : the complete graphic work by T. G Rosenthal( Book )

12 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many of the greatest artists since Durer and Rembrandt have used the print medium to explore some of 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 book, with reproductions in tritone and colour, is the first monograph to deal exclusively with Rego's graphic work. It discusses and illustrates all her prints, including unpublished work - over 200 etchings and lithographs spanning half a century from 1954 to 2003." "T.G. Rosenthal, a long-time supporter of Rego's work, discusses the background to each series, and comments on each print. He also quotes extensively from his and others' conversations with the artist, underlining Rego's subversive humour and her strongly feminist outlook. A fully illustrated catalogue raisonne by Hannah Begbie, a description of Rego's etching techniques by the artist and printmaker Paul Coldwell, a list of exhibitions, a chronology and a bibliography make this a unique source of information on a major aspect of this leading artist's work."--Jacket

Stone soup by Paula Rego( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Full of the macabre touches and dark humour that have made Paula Rego's reputation, Stone Soup is a new version of the traditional Portuguese folktale by her daughter, the designer and writer, Cas Willing. Typically read to children to encourage cooperation in times of scarcity, the fable has existed in numerous incarnations for centuries. We follow the efforts of a young female traveller in her attempt to save herself from starvation, persuading suspicious townspeople to supply her with food for her mysterious Stone Soup. All thirteen watercolour and ink paintings are reproduced here, bringing together Rego's expressive cast of figures amidst their troubled landscape."--Publisher's website, accessed April 10, 2018

Paula Rego : nursery rhymes by Paula Rego( Book )

4 editions published between 1989 and 2019 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The bold, distinctive style of Paula Rego's paintings has acquired for her not only an ever-increasing critical reputation but also an unusually large and enthusiastic following. Her be-ribboned little-girl heroines and fairy-tale characters seem firmly rooted in childhood, yet the innocence of this art is darkened by the underlying themes of power, domination and rebellion, sexuality and gender, that run through her work. Here Rego has turned to the nursery rhyme as a source for her imagery. It is a genre that perfectly complements her art; full of double meanings, rhymes are written from a child's perspective but are open to adult interpretation. Twenty-six well-known nursery rhymes are accompanied by a series of etchings which she has executed spontaneously as a child might, drawing directly on the plate without preparatory planning. Following the traditions of earlier artists such as Beatrix Potter, she treats the fantastic realistically, dressing animals in human costume and using dream-like dislocations of scale. These are wonderfully comic and rich illustrations with a hint of the sinister, that turn classic nursery rhymes into colourful stories about folly and delusion, cruelty, convention and sex
