The lives of Lee Miller by Antony Penrose( Book )

45 editions published between 1985 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lee Miller's career encompassed several different careers: she was a successful model, then a leading Surrealist photographer; and then a war correspondent during World War II. Compiled by her son, this book offers a record of Miller's life and work
Lee Miller's war : photographer and correspondent with the Allies in Europe, 1944-45 by Lee Miller( Book )

22 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 657 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
Lee Miller : a woman's war by Lee Miller( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lee Miller photographed innumerable women during her career, first as a fashion photographer and then as a journalist during the Second World War, documenting the social consequences of the conflict, particularly the impact of the war on women across Europe. Her work as a war photographer is perhaps that for which she is best remembered; in fact, she was among the 20th century's most important photographers on the subject. Published to coincide with an exhibition at the Imperial War Museum, Lee Miller: A Womans War tells the story beyond the battlefields of the Second World War by way of Miller's extraordinary photographs of the women whose lives were affected. Introductions by Hilary Roberts and Antony Penrose, Lee Miller's son, precede Miller's work, which is divided into chronological chapters. Miller's photographs, many previously unpublished, are accompanied by extended captions that place the images within the context of women's roles within the landscape of war
Man Ray / Lee Miller : partners in Surrealism by Phillip Prodger( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 334 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
Roland Penrose : the friendly surrealist by Antony Penrose( Book )

13 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The friendly Surrealist", an apt description for Roland Penrose, the man who more than any other nurtured the friendships and connections which introduced European Surrealism to the British art world
The home of the surrealists : Lee Miller, Roland Penrose, and their circle at Farley Farm by Antony Penrose( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Specially commissioned photographs by Alan MacWeeney are presented alongside photographs by Lee Miller, telling the story of Farley Farm and its inhabitants over thirty-five years. Antony Penrose offers personal anecdotes of the dramas and outrageous surprises that were part of everyday life growing up in an unconventional milieu and enjoying visits from some of the most flamboyant and famous artists of the day. The book also documents the internationally renowned collection of painting and sculpture that Miller and Penrose established in their home - in part composed of artistic mementos of their friends, like the tile in the kitchen by Picasso or the poem on the stairs by Eliard." "Blending great art with original photography and intimate recollection, this book provides a revealing firsthand account of a Surrealist artists' colony and the story of one of the most fascinating collections of modern art ever assembled."--BOOK JACKET
Surreal encounters : collecting the marvellous : works from the collections of Roland Penrose, Edward James, Gabrielle Keiller and Ulla and Heiner Pietzsch( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together over 160 of the finest surrealist artworks by legendary artists including Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, Rene Magritte, Joan Miro and Man Ray. The works hail from the four renowned and extraordinary private collections of Edward James, Roland Penrose, Gabrielle Keiller and Ulla and Heiner Pietzsch, and together offer a superb overview of surrealist art. Ten essays explore the different origins, historical contexts and creative urges behind these collections. Artworks, perhaps more than anything else that one can acquire, are objects of desire and surrealist artworks even more so. The sheer quality of the works acquired (and, in the case of the Pietzsches, still being acquired) is astonishing and, while passionate about their private visions, all the collectors have been mindful of contributing something to the public good. The collections complement each other to an extraordinary degree and allow us to follow some of the artists' careers from beginning to end. By uniting them, exciting new juxtapositions emerge along with a fuller and richer picture of the surrealist movement as a whole

Antony lebte mit seinen Eltern, der Fotografin Lee Miller und dem Schriftsteller Robert Penrose, auf einer kleinen Farm in Südengland. Eines Tages bekamen sie Besuch von einem befreundeten Maler namens Pablo Picasso. Antony verstand sich gleich gut mit ihm, doch einmal war er sehr aufgeregt und biss Picasso. Der zögerte nicht und biss zurück. Das war der erste Engländer, den ich je gebissen habe, sagte er später. Picasso hielt gemeinsame Erlebnisse in Zeichnungen fest. (Verlagstext)
