Paula Rego

I was first told about Paula Rego while I was doing my undergrad. I remember not really taking much interest at first. But last year while I was living in Portugal I saw a majority of her work in person and I fell in love with her work and her process. The fact that she builds her sets and subjects herself I love. She is the most famous living artist to come out of Portugal though she lives in England. She was honored with her own museum Casa das Histórias in Cascais just last year and the collection is impressive.
