Paula Rego: One of the greatest figurative artists of her generation, who places women at the centre of her work

Episode 2,  Jul 14, 08:00 AM

The latest episode of Making a Mark explores the graphic work of Dame Paula Rego RA (b. 1935), one of the most important figurative artists of her generation, who places women’s lives and stories at the centre of her work.
 
Curator and Associate Director at Cristea Roberts Gallery, Sophie Lindo, discusses Rego’s profound and ground-breaking body of work. We hear from Rego, who has been making prints for over 50 years; her son, filmmaker Nick Willing; writer Marina Warner; poet Blake Morrison, whose 1996 Pendle Witches poetry collection inspired a powerful series of prints by the artist, and Professor Paul Coldwell, a master printmaker who worked with Rego over a period of 20 years.  
 
Making a Mark is a new podcast by Cristea Roberts Gallery exploring the relationship between artists and printmaking.⁠
