Marlborough Graphics is pleased to announce a new tapestry by Paula Rego. Eagles Daughter, 2016, based on an 16th century folk tale, tells the story of a beautiful young girl’s life, born to a man who was raised by eagles, and betrayed by an ugly, wicked old woman.

Produced with textile design at Factum Arte in Madrid, the work was woven by Flanders Tapestries in Belgium. The tapestry is shown alongside a selection of etchings and lithographs including the critically acclaimed series The Pendle Witches (1996) and The Children’s Crusade (1996-8).
