Hmmm. Something went wrong. Can you try again?

By Anthony Spira and Catherine Lampert.

This book accompanies a major touring exhibition spanning Rego’s entire career since the 1960s, with a focus on work that addresses the moral challenges to humanity, particularly in the face of violence, poverty, political tyranny, gender discrimination, and grief. The selected pictures, which include previously unseen paintings and works on paper from the artist’s family and close friends, reflect Rego’s perspective as an empathetic, courageous woman and a defender of justice. The book includes a substantial text by exhibition curator Catherine Lampert that will consider Rego’s oeuvre as a whole and draw upon the artist’s own interpretations and revelations about individual works, as well as appreciations of the artist’s achievements by the acclaimed young American writer Kate Zambreno and new Irish author Sally Rooney.
