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 in their power and strength at translating life into art. The museum is a haven... 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 directed by her son Nick Willing who curated this exhibition. Our understanding was increased by... More

Paula Rego is one of the most interesting artists of our time, with so many fantastic works. The building in itself is also worth a visit. And the café has great food and a beautiful garden. Good museum shop.

My trip to the Paula Rego show in Caiscais was the highlight of my trip to Lisbon. It is a fabulous show representing works I have not seen before. It is beautifully curated by Rego's son, Nick Willing, with statements by the artist and a reconstruction of her studio, which offer insights and are a refreshing change to much art... More

I know she's Portugal's most famous living artist and I visit the gallery regularly. I want to like her work but find it dark and difficult. So I was pleased to find the latest exhibition (April 7-Sept 17) more 'accessible'. It had a personal feel and tone and covered lots - her early life, her time at the Slade in... More

We love this artist and were anxious to see the museum and her work. Although the website said open and the doors and gift shop and cafe were open, the displays were closed for another week! We drove all that way because they did not update their website-not user friendly at all.

The building was beautiful and the price was fair but the art work we found to be a little strange and disturbing.

Worth a visit. I wasn't familiar with this Portuguese artist who gets 6-figure prices out of London at Marlborough Gallery. They have a little cafe that is restful and nice. You can park around the museum, it is set in a residential neighborhood and is a bit of a walk (not too bad) from downtown Cascais on the western part... More

The surf movie festival was awesome, Paula Rêgo's paintings and overall art is beautiful even if related to an ideology
