The maids by Paula Rego greeting card


Single greeting card with envelope featuring artwork The Maids by Paula Rego.

In Rego’s version of Jean Genet’s The Maids play, the two maids only barely conceal their malicious intent, while the props are suggestive of hidden motives and other characters: the stuffed boar, for example is a symbol of the mistress’s absent and impotent husband.

Dame Paula Rego is a Portuguese-born visual artist who is particularly known for her paintings and prints based on storybooks.
