ANTHONY PENROSE

We welcome back the very popular Anthony Penrose.  Some of you may remember the lecture he gave ‘The Boy that bit Picasso’ some years ago.  (Spoiler alert – He really was the boy that bit Picasso!)

This time, he will talk about his mother : The Legendary Lee Miller.

She was an American fashion model who travelled to Paris.  She mixed with surrealist artists, set up her own studio and became an acclaimed photographer – mainly of the Second World War.  Her harrowing pictures depicting human suffering are well documented and will not be shown at this lecture.

Instead Anthony will lecture on:

 

LEE MILLER – 

  • WITNESSING WOMEN AT WAR AND THEIR SUPERB INPUT
  • LEE MILLER and MAN RAY
  • BACKSTAGE AT THE LEE MILLER ARCHIVES 

 

Lee Miller famously photographed using Hitler’s bath after the fall of Berlin

 

 

 

The day includes three talks along with lunch and tickets will cost £35.

Tickets will go on sale from the May lecture.
