Overview

A signature figure in the transatlantic circles of 20th-century art, Miller excelled as a model, muse, photojournalist, and photographic artist. The Art of Lee Miller gathers key images both by and of Miller and features several works never before exhibited or published. In this conversation, Penrose and Haworth-Booth discuss how the show highlights Miller's artistic achievement and remarkable life. The program is followed by a screening of The Lives of Lee Miller (55 min.), Robin Lough's 1985 documentary about the photographer based on Penrose's research for his book of the same title.
