Library Shelf Location 18.MILL
Publication Date 03 Feb 2005
Description Lee Miller (1907-77) was not only a fashion model, the lover of Man Ray and the wife of Roland Penrose, but also a hugely accomplished photographer. This book celebrates her career as a portrait artist, from her surrealist studies of the 1920s to editorial assignments for Vogue, and her formative work as a war correspondent. In a career spanning more than three decades, Miller's portfolio of sitters included many distinguished and familiar faces: Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau, Marlene Dietrich, Henry Moore, T.S. Eliot and Leonora Carrington. With her husband, the painter, writer and collector Roland Penrose, Lee Miller entertained and documented a range of cultural circles at their Sussex home, Farley Farm.
