Lee Miller and Surrealism in Britain
The exhibition Lee Miller and Surrealism in Britain provides an insight into one of the most important poles of the Surrealist movement’s complex international network. The North American photographer Lee Miller and her partner, the British artist Roland Penrose, acted as ambassadors of the Surrealist cause in London. They were also close friends with Joan Miró, who remained in permanent contact with the Surrealist scene in Britain, culminating with his monographic exhibition at the Tate Gallery in 1964.
