The bride by Paula Rego greeting card
Single greeting card with envelope featuring artwork The Bride by Paula Rego.
This painting came after Rego discovered the work of artist Henry Darger, whose fantastical ‘Vivian Girls’ are assisted by magical animals in resisting occupation by enemy soldiers. In The Bride, two girls surrounded by strawberries playfight with toy crocodiles, while another is occupied with embroidery. The work has a playful spontaneity and all-over composition, as if conjured up at speed.
Dame Paula Rego is a Portuguese-born visual artist who is particularly known for her paintings and prints based on storybooks.
