Casa das Histórias Paula Rego Collection

November 4th 2021 to June 19th 2022 (Rooms 1 to 7)

Curator: Catarina Alfaro


The Casa das Histórias Paula Rego (CHPR) Collection, under the ownership of Cascais Municipal Council,first made its appearance in the Portuguese museum world in September 2009. Since then, it has come to be regarded, both nationally and internationally, as one of the most significant collections for the knowledge of the artist's work.

Consisting of the donation that the artist made of all her print work and more than two hundred drawings, this Collection reflects much of her creative universe. The various donations to the museum date from four different periods: the main core of the collection was donated in 2009, while, in 2016, 2019 and 2020, the museum received the remaining prints produced between 2009 and 2020.

The collection also includes thirteen works belonging to private and public collectors that have been deposited at this monographic museum dedicated to the most famous contemporary Portuguese artist: a group of works that have helped to fill some of the gaps in the collection and contribute to the overall view of the artist's pictorial production from the 1960s to the 2000s.

The current exhibition offers a new and stimulating look at the Collection, providing visitors with a renewed presentation of the artist's production and enhancing the value of the lesser-known works, while also displaying her loose drawings and sketchbooks, some of which have never before been exhibited publicly.
