Paula Rego

In remembering Paula Rego, I discovered the attached recording of her talking about her commissioned portrait of Germaine Greer. I knew it had been a struggle. RIP.

    By sheer coincidence, I’m just about to start reading a biography of Greer, by Elizabeth Kleinhenz. I’ll be interested to see if the portrait is mentioned.

    When I interviewed Paula and Germaine (separately) for a short Channel4 film about that portrait (in about 2000), Germaine claimed the pose was her idea, much to Paula’s amusement!
