Roland Penrose

Sir Roland Penrose was a major figure of Surrealism in Britain and also promoted many other aspects of contemporary English art during his lifetime.

In 1936, he helped organise the International Surrealist Exhibition in London and worked closely with artists such as Ernst, Miro, and Picasso.

After the war in 1947, he and Herbert Read founded the Institute of Contemporary Arts and went on to write several books, including Picasso: His Life and Works in 1958.
