Item description for Lee Miller and Roland Penrose: The Green Memories of Desire (Pegasus Series) by Katherine Slusher...

The story of an extraordinary partnership that inspired and shaped twentieth-century art and photography.

This richly illustrated joint biography tells the story of how a fashion model turned photographer and an English Quaker turned art collector and Surrealist painter influenced modern art with their vision and passion.

As they inspired each other's careers and established their home as meeting place for the exchange of ideas among artists such as Pablo Picasso, Man Ray, Max Ernst, Paul luard, Joan Mir, and Saul Steinberg, Miller and Penrose created a life together that was in itself a work of art. In the book concise accounts of their lives are followed by comparisons of their works, which demonstrate their symbiotic relationship. The range of art reproduced in the book--photographs, sketches, paintings and collages--offers a kaleidoscopic sampling of these two important oeuvres and an exquisite portrayal of a unique and uniquely productive partnership.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lee Miller and Roland Penrose: The Green Memories of Desire (Pegasus Series)?

"A must have"  May 23, 2007
For anyone interested in Lee Miller, or Lee Miller and Roland Penrose, or Roland Penrose, or the mysterious and marvelous relationship between artists who end up falling love, this book is for you. Katherine Slusher does an incredible job depicting the simpatico (and, at times, not so simpatico, yet always dynamic) shared life of Miller and Penrose, placing them among other, wellknown artistic couples like O'Keeffe and Stieglitz, Kahlo and Rivera, Mondotti and Weston, to mention a few. Slusher, who had access to the Lee Miller Archives, loads her book with wonderful pictures, some seldom seen in other publications. It's fascinating to read the ways in which Miller and Penrose come together and apart and together and apart while making important and fundamental contributions to the world of art. Slusher's writing is clear, well informed, and a pleasure to read.
