An artist of remarkable imagination her work has forever changed the representation of women in figurative art.  This exhibition will display works from throughout the artist’s career and explore how her admiration for William Hogarth has inspired elements of her work.   

Dame Paula Rego was born in Portugal in 1935 and now lives in London. She is recognised as one of the most significant artists of her time, whose extraordinary imaginative power has played a key role in redefining the possibilities of figurative art. She has turned to folk tales and nursery rhymes for her subjects, as well as to stories from her native Portugal and the injustices of sexual politics, which she interprets with a unique perspective.

We are delighted Dame Paula Rego has gifted the Wine series to Hogarth’s House, this is a never before exhibited series inspired by Hogarth’s Beer Street and Gin Lane


T.W. this exhibition contains a series of work relating to the sensitive topic of abortion.
