Very impressed with the collection of paintings. Also the building worth a visit to see this Souto de Moura project.

Was not familiar with Paula Rego's work before visiting, but so enjoyed this gallery, seeing her art, and learning about her life. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Cascais.

We took in the "Secrets & Stories" exhibition (on until September). A biographical walk through her life via her work. Curated by her son. Coruscating elegiac and very arresting. Some pieces as good (and traumatic) as F Bacon or L Freud. A mock up of...More

Current powerful exhibition follows the themes about Paula Rego's life portrayed in the recent documentary film by her son. The Abortion series and the Fisherman triptych uses intense realism and allegory to reveal haunting episodes in her life, not unlike Max Beckmann and Frieda Kahlo...More

Dame Paula is not for the faint hearted. We passed last year but the gallery was closed for re-hanging or redecorating. Now that we live a short train journey from Cascais it was worth another attempt. We were also prompted by the recent BBC programme...More
