When photographer Lee Miller moved to Farleys in Sussex with her husband, painter Roland Penrose in 1949, settling down was most definitely not on the agenda. Farleys was soon transformed from a traditional Sussex farmhouse into a vibrant hub of Modern Art and Surrealist life. Their son Antony Penrose recalls memories of friends who came to visit, many of whom were prominent figures of the 20th Century, such as Dorothea Tanning, Man Ray and Picasso. Illustrated with photographs taken by Lee Miller in the 50s, this presentation is a fascinating insight into the lives of his parents and their friends.
Followed by a book signing with Antony Penrose
