Jean Cocteau's Orphic trilogy( Visual )

2 editions published in 2000 in French and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1. Jean Cocteau turns the Orpheus legend into a story of a poet and his encounter with death and the middle world. 2. An artist is driven mad by the sight of his own blood and a drawing of a mouth that seems to come to life. The combination sends him off on a series of bizarre adventures that strive to explain how artists become obsessed with their own works. 3. In his last film Cocteau portrays an 18th century poet who travels through time on a quest for divine wisdom. In a mysterious wasteland, he meets several symbolic phantoms that bring about his death and resurrection. The film finished the circle of the journey begun in Blood of a Poet, exploring the torturous relationship between the artist and his creations

Lee Miller's war : photographer and correspondent with the Allies in Europe, 1944-45 by Lee Miller( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lee Miller's work for Vogue from 1941-45 sets her apart as a photographer of extraordinary ability, and the quality of her work from the period has long been recognized as outstanding. Its full range is shown here, accompanied by her brilliant despatches." "Miller's words manage to combine immediacy with acute observation, and deep personal involvement with professional detachment. Complementing her natural talent in writing are over one hundred and fifty remarkable photographs from the Lee Miller Archives. With their own quality of surrealist irony, which at times verges on the horrific and at others on the hilarious, they show war-ravaged cities, buildings and landscapes, but above all war-resilient people - soldiers, leaders, medics, evacuees, prisoners of war, the wounded, the villains and the heroes."--Jacket

Man Ray / Lee Miller : partners in Surrealism by Phillip Prodger( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Surrealist artists Man Ray and Lee Miller lived together in Paris between 1929 and 1932, first as teacher and student, and later as lovers. Historically, Miller has been described as Ray's muse, but their brief, mercurial love affair was in fact a key source of mutual and sustained inspiration, resulting in some of the most powerful work of each artist's career. Bringing together unique and rarely seen photographs, paintings, sculpture, and drawings by Ray and Miller, as well as those of other renowned artists in their circle, including Picasso, Roland Penrose, Dora Maar, and Alexander Calder, this ... book tells the story of the tumultuous relationship between the two."--Book jacket
