The life of Lee Miller, told with reference to those with whom she exchanged creative inspiration – Man Ray, Roland Penrose, Pablo Picasso, David E. Scherman, her father Theodore Miller and her son Antony Penrose. A definitive view by her son and biographer, this presentation has been acclaimed for its ability to embrace many different levels of the history of art and photography, social commentary and emotional connection with the subject. It gives an accurate and lasting portrait of a talented and courageous woman who was a free spirit and a trail blazer.

Contains some war time images which may be disturbing.

"That was not so much a lecture as a prose poem set to beautiful images. "Andrew Parkin, Poet, Critic and Chairman, Paris DFAS
"A well researched and informative lecture was indeed a master class.” Jonathan Hill, Chairman, S.W. Branch Photographic Collectors Club of Great Britain.

Full price $22.5; Auckland Art Gallery Members' price $15. Members' guests pay full price. Please be ready to present your Members card at the door if you purchase a Members' ticket.
