31 OCTOBER 2018 - 20 JANUARY 2019
Fundació Joan Miró | BARCELONA, SPAIN

First a model and a muse, Lee Miller (1907-1977) then achieved a successful career in photography, pioneering across the fields of art, fashion and journalism.

Ambassador for the Surrealist movement in London jointly with her husband, the artist Roland Penrose, Lee Miller played a key role in shaping one of the most vibrant art scenes of the twentieth century.Lee Miller and Surrealism in Britain reveals the creative connections and productive collisions that emerged between British artists in the 1930s and 1940s, and the international surrealist network as a whole.

Lee Miller and Surrealism in Britain gathers close to 200 pieces - photographs, drawings, paintings and sculptures - in order to create a dialogue between an extensive selection of Miller’s photographic work and masterpieces by some of the most prominent surrealist artists: Max Ernst, Leonora Carrington, Man Ray, Yves Tanguy, Eileen Agar, Roland Penrose, Paul Nash, Salvador Dalí, Giorgio de Chirico, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, Maruja Mallo, Francis Picabia, Àngel Planells and Dora Maar.
