Your Paintings - Paula Rego’s ‘Sleeping’

A statue comes to life in a magical gallery and climbs into the painting 'Sleeping' by Paula Rego. Inside the painting she explores Rego’s inspirations and her desire to have viewers make up stories about her works. We explore the techniques Rego used to create her works, and her placement within the artistic world at the time of the painting and beyond.

In a mixture of live action, animation and elements of the painting itself, the clip brings the painting to life and ends by encouraging viewers to create their own story to explain what is happening in the painting.
