However after a second visit to the exhibit, I found myself more interested with the theme of scandal & gossip. Below shows a piece by Rego from the exhibition, it depicts a young girl who has been forced into marriage with an older man, shown as a pig. One to the right, is by Daumier and shows a similar situation, an old man excited and happy, with his young new bride in his bed.
