Casa Das Hist贸rias (Paula Rego)

The Drowned Bear (Paula Rego)
This collection (held in Cascais) consists of an extraordinary group of paintings, drawings and etchings produced by Paula Rego on a variety of media and using a wide range of techniques. The collection covers a period of roughly 50 years in her prolific artistic career, and will be shown in the permanent exhibition on a rotational basis.
Most of Paula Rego's paintings are works from the 1980s (e.g. the Opera series; Vivian Girls; In and Out of the Sea) but also include some of her emblematic pieces from the 1960s (e.g. Always at Your Excellency's Service; When We Had a House in the Country; The Exile; Centaur), the 1990s (e.g. Angel; Love; The Company of Women) and even as late as 2008 (Human Cargo).
Besides her work, there is another exhibition entitled "My Choice", Where Paula Rego sellects her favourite pieces from the British Council Collection: One hundred and twenty works, which include drawings, engravings, photographs and paintings, that reflect the artist's identity.

My Choice Collection: Madame Yevonde,
Machine Worker in Summer, 1937
