Paula Rego’s stories housed in Cascais

A brand new museum in Cascais, at the outskirts of the Lisbon, has just been opened to enrich the cultural map of the country and pay tribute to one of the most important contemporary artists ever born in Portugal. The official opening of Casa das Histórias Paula Rego, designed by architect Eduardo Souto de Moura, took place on September 18 and naturally it is marked by an exhibition of a significant collection of works by Paula Rego, as well as some by her husband, artist and art critic Victor Willing (1928-1988). The new museum’s virgin exhibition will be on view until March 2010.
