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.
