Surrealist Lee Miller


In stock


Lee Miller was one of the most original photographic artists of the 20th century, her Surrealist eye informed everything she did. Her work presents the world in a way that encourages us to view it in a different manner.

Surrealist before she knew of the movement Lee Miller was ‘caustically brilliant, yet totally loyal, unpretentious, human and intolerant of sham.”She was a consummate artist and a consummate clown; at once an upstate New York hick and cosmopolitan grande dame; a cold, soignée fashion model and a hoyden… She was the nearest thing I knew to a mid-20th century renaissance woman” wrote David E. Scherman, LIFE photographer and a close friend of Lee.

Written and selected by her son Antony Penrose these 100 full page images from throughout Lee Miller’s life are an attestation to her way of seeing.
