Paula Rego has long had a fascination with Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre and Jean Rhys’s Wide Sargasso Sea.
Twenty-five of Rego’s lithographs are reproduced in this artist’s book, along with excerpts from the novel. An eloquent and perceptive introduction by Marina Warner examines why Jane Eyre should have inspired Rego’s work.
“…an emphasis on the fire in the mind and the dark outside might perhaps reveal…how Paula of all artists would respond to Jane Eyre…”
A signed limited edition print, Jane, is also available here.
