“The exhibition recovers works from the period that coincides with the artist's recognition and affirmation in London, during the 80s [of the last century], and develops from the presentation of works that correspond to the period of the artist's international consecration, including reference series from her career, such as the lithographs of 'Jane Eyre' or the set of engravings and paintings 'Untitled', from 1998–2000, known as the abortion series”, explained the president of the foundation, Aida Carvalho.

The exhibition is a partnership between Casa das Histórias Paula Rego and the Côa Museum, located in Vila Nova de Foz Côa, in the district of Guarda, and will be curated by Catarina Alfaro, as part of the celebration program for the 25th anniversary of the registration of the Sites of Côa Valley Rock Art on the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage list, which is marked on December 2nd.

“To celebrate this anniversary, we chose an exhibition with 80 works covering the entire artistic career of a major name in the visual arts, such as Paula Rego, given his international reach”, said Aida Carvalho.
