Angel by Paula Rego poster print
80 x 60 cm poster print featuring artwork Angel by Portuguese artist Paula Rego. Created to accompany the exhibition Paula Rego | Obedience and Defiance on display at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art from 23 Nov to 29 April 2020. Print comes rolled in a cardboard tube.
The strongly contrasting colours in this artwork Rego took inspiration from the Spanish painter Bartoleme Esteban Murillo. The figure, who takes up most of the canvas, is starkly portrayed. Protective but also assertive in her stance, she is a symbol of female power and strength.
Dame Paula Rego is a Portuguese-born visual artist who is particularly known for her paintings and prints based on storybooks.
