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

22 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lee Miller's work for Vogue from 1941 to 1945 sets her apart as a photographer and writer of extraordinary ability. She has joined the ranks of those rare war correspondents and photographers whose vision goes far beyond mere reportage and commands the attention of generations. The quality of her photography from the period has long been recognized as outstanding. Now, for the first time, its full range is shown, accompanied by her brilliant text." "Lee Miller was born in Poughkeepsie, New York, in 1907. "Discovered" by Conde Nast in 1927 as the beauty of her generation, she went on to be a fashion model, the protegee and lover of Man Ray, a central character in the circle of Surrealists, and a renowned and innovative photographer in her own right for Vogue. When war broke out, Miller was enjoying what appeared to be a charmed life in Britain, but bored with mundane assignments and utterly frustrated that the biggest story of her life was taking place without her, she managed to secure accreditation to the U.S. Armed Forces as a war correspondent. From that point, Vogue's coverage took on a quality more usually associated with the best news magazines." "Dressed in olive drab, winning the affection of soldiers of all ranks, armed with a battered Baby Hermes typewriter, basic camera equipment, and an iron will, she went straight to the heart of the grim business of war. She found it agony to commit events to paper, but her voracious appetite to be a witness of military action and human reaction led to an enormous output of words. Her writing manages to combine immediacy with acute observation, and deep personal involvement with professional detachment." "Complementing this naturally talented writing are one hundred and eighty remarkable photographs from the Lee Miller Archives, many previously unpublished. With their own quality of surrealist irony, which verges at times on the horrific and at other times on the hilarious, they show war-ravaged cities, buildings, and landscapes but also war-resilient people--soldiers, leaders, medics, evacuees, prisoners of war, the wounded, the villains, and the heroes." "There is the raw edge of combat portrayed during the siege of St Malo and the bitterly fought Alsace campaign, and the disbelief and outrage Lee Miller describes at being among the first to witness the victims of Dachau. The horror is relieved by the spirit of post-Liberation Paris. Here she indulged in frivolous fashions and recorded memorable conversations with Picasso, Cocteau, Eluard, Aragon, and Colette. She ends with a first-on-the-scene report giving a sardonic description of Hitler's abandoned house in Munich and the looting and burning of his alpine fortress at Berchtesgaden, which marks a symbolic end to the war."--BOOK JACKET
Lee Miller : a woman's war by Lee Miller( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 387 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 held by 348 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."--Jacket
Roland Penrose : the friendly surrealist by Antony Penrose( Book )

15 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The home of the surrealists : Lee Miller, Roland Penrose, and their circle at Farley Farm by Antony Penrose( Book )

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

"In its heyday, Farley Farm, the home of American photographer Lee Miller and British artist Roland Penrose in Sussex, southern England, represented one of the most important collections of modern art in Britain, with a list of visitors that reads like a Who's Who of twentieth-century artists - from Pablo Picasso and Max Ernst, Man Ray and Joan Miro, to to Paul Eluard and Henry Moore. In this book, Miller's and Penrose's son, Antony Penrose, opens the door of Farley Farm to allow a rare glimpse inside a remarkable house, boasting a superb art collection and serving for over thirty years as the home of two talented artists at the forefront of the Surrealist movement."
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 140 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.
