Lee Miller


Se termina ya la exposición de Lee Miller y su relación con Picasso que se exhibe estos días en Barcelona. Junto con las fotografías de los caóticos talleres del artista, puede verse una muestra significativa de la obra de esta fotógrafa, así como los retratos que le pintó Picasso. Al parecer, se prepara otra exposición en Londres el año próximo.


Lo que más me ha gustado: las fotos de Vogue de la artista y las fotografías de los campos de concentración alemanes.




Lee Miller is one of the most renowned female icons of the 20th century - a unique individual admired as much for her free-spirit, creativity and intelligence as for her classical beauty.
This exhibition will cover her extraordinary career as a photographer and is the first complete retrospective of her life and work, exploring her transformation from artist's muse to ground-breaking artist.
Miller was born in New York in 1907 and modelled for Vogue before meeting Man Ray in Paris in 1929. She became both his lover and muse, and inspired by his work, started to develop her own images.
She became war photographer for London Vogue and was the only woman in combat photojournalism in Europe. After the war she returned to fashion photography and portraiture, photographing key figures of the day including Picasso, Man Ray and Miro.
The exhibition will celebrate the centenary of her birth.
