Lee Miller – Witnessing women at war
and AGM (1.30pm)
Antony Penrose Monday 11 June 2018

For Lee Miller, a Woman at War was any woman caught up in WW2. She photographed faultless images for Vogue in London’s bombed out streets, documented the magnificent work of the WRNS, ATS, Land Girls and nurses, and shows us the concentration camp victims and refugees of Europe.


We are pleased to welcome back Antony Penrose who for 30 years has conserved and disseminated the work of his parents, Lee Miller and Roland Penrose. He is the director of The Lee Miller Archives and The Penrose Collection at Farley Farm House in Sussex and has seen his parents' work featured in major exhibitions at the V&A, National Portrait Gallery, Manchester Art Gallery, Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and the Whitworth. He has lectured at museums and universities around the world, and made documentaries for television. Publications include The Lives of Lee Miller, Lee Miller's War (editor), The Angel and the Fiend, The Home of the Surrealists, Roland Penrose the Friendly Surrealist and The Boy Who Bit Picasso.
