During her extraordinary life, Lee Miller mixed with some of the most influential and celebrated people of her time, many of whom became her friends and also the subjects of her penetrating portraits.
Richard Calvocoressi, curator of a major Lee Miller exhibition at The National Portrait Gallery, has collected together the finest of these photographs for this acclaimed book, newly available in paperback. Featuring not only perceptive and sympathetic studies of Pablo Picasso, Igor Stravinsky, Max Ernst, Marlene Dietrich, Henry Moore, Colette and others, but also photographs of unsung individuals engaged in war work, they are a remarkable testament to the power and artistry of Miller’s eye.
