New Exhibition and Publication by Lee Miller Archives
‘Lee Miller and Roland Penrose: Love Letters Bound in Gold Handcuffs’ is a new exhibition and publication at Farleys House and Gallery in East Sussex. Including photographs that have never been displayed before, the exhibition charts the meeting of photographer Lee Miller and Surrealist artist Roland Penrose.
The exhibition is accompanied by the latest, and biggest, book published by the Lee Miller Archives. In over 400 pages and more than 200 images, Lee and Roland’s love letters tell the story of a long-distance relationship that survived war and political turmoil, producing some of the most important art and photography of the 20th Century.
