1988 — The Family. Oil on Canvas. Expressionism style. Paula Rego (1935 – ).

In The Family the absent father and husband returns to the picture plane, only to be manhandled by his daughter and his wife. As usual, the narrative clues are ambiguous, and the story could have several endings. (Wikipaintings)
