Roland Penrose – The Friendly Surrealist


Only 2 left in stock


“Penrose”, wrote Andre Breton, “est Surrealiste dans l’amitie” – and “The Friendly Surrealist” is an apt description for the man who more than any other nurtured the friendships and contacts which introduced European Surrealism to the British art world.

This memoir, written by his son Antony, was published to accompany an important retrospective exhibition in Edinburgh and is illustrated with contemporary photographs, including those of his second wife (the author’s mother), Lee Miller. 192 pages with 28 black-and-white and 21 full-colour illustrations.
