The relationship between Lee Miller and Picasso ANTONY PENROSE Monday 08 October 2018

Antony Penrose.   Film maker, Photographer, Artist and Author

The relationship between Lee Miller and Picasso began during the enchanted summer holidays they shared in the Cote d'Azur and lasted until his death in 1973.  Picasso painted 6 portraits of Lee Miller and she photographed him more than 1000 times.

She was a frequent visitor to his home in post war years accompanying Roland Penrose on his many research trips whilst he was writing his biography of the artist 'Picasso His Life and Work'.

This story is told mainly using Lee Miller's own photographs and contains a brief biography of her and Roland Penrose.
