Sleeping by Paula Rego greeting card

Sleeping by Paula Rego greeting card


Single greeting card with envelope featuring artwork Sleeping by Paula Rego.

Sleeping contains some sense of threat. The peaceful sleep of the two women at the front is contrasted with the two figures with their backs to the viewer. The pelican is a symbol often used by Rego, referring to the self-sacrificial bird of folk tales that pierced its own heart in order to feed its young with its blood.

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