Paula Rego – Printmaker

Venue: The Corn Hall
An exhibition in the Lower Gallery
24 September – 5 November   10am-4pm   (not Sundays)
The Tate Gallery’s major retrospective of Paula Rego’s work last year confirmed her position as one of the most important post-war European artists and emphasised the role that printmaking plays in her oeuvre. 
Our exhibition is a survey of her prints, from early anti-Franco images to etchings from her famous Nursery Rhymes and Peter Pan portfolios and her Jane Eyre suite of lithographs. We will also be showing unique, unpublished prints and preparatory studies. 
Saturday 24 September
Exhibition Talk 11am & 2pm, Free
Join David Case and Matt Kirkum for an introductory exhibition talk. Booking advised. 

Film – Secrets and Stories  11.45am, Free 
Made for BBC television in 2017 by her film director son, Nick Willing, ‘Secrets and Stories’ is a vivid account of the artist’s personal life and career, from her childhood in Portugal to her current international status. Fascinating, honest and at times disturbing. 
1hr 29mins.
