Paula Rego: The Forgotten at Victoria Miro review - raw, shocking and free
By Ben Luke
Paula Rego’s recent Tate Britain retrospective ended with work made in 2009, so there was nothing from the last decade. This new show at Victoria Miro gallery partly fills in the gap between then and now, with several pieces from recent years alongside other pastels and drawings from the last two decades. It’s a patchwork of different groups, united as The Forgotten – they each deal with themes that are often hidden in our lives, including depression and the indignities of old age.
