Paula Rego: Behind the Scenes offers the reader a unique opportunity to observe the studio life and working practice of one of the most important figurative artists working today. In 1994 Paula Rego took on her own studio in Camden, north London. The space and freedom that this allowed her had a dramatic effect not only on her final works but also on her preparations, models, method and technique. This new book features many unseen and personal photographs of the artist at work and sheds new light on some of her best-known pieces.
