Spain’s Miro Foundation Hails Lee Miller’s Role in International Surrealism

BARCELONA – An art exhibition that opened on Monday at Barcelona’s Miro Foundation provides a rare insight into one of Surrealism’s most important contributors who was also a key contact within the art movement’s complex international network.

North American photographer Lee Miller (1907-1977) and her partner, British artist Roland Penrose, who acted as ambassadors of the Surrealist movement in London, are the main focus in the exhibition, “Lee Miller and Surrealism in Britain.”

The exhibition tracks some of Surrealism’s lesser-known episodes while revealing Miller’s role in keeping links open between United Kingdom’s artists and the international Surrealist movement.

“This project seeks to underscore that Lee Miller was a unique artist, but was also part of one of the most vibrant art scenes of the last century,” the foundation’s director, Marko Daniel, said.

The exhibition covers Miller’s photographic trajectory alongside artworks by leading surrealist artists such as Max Ernst, Leonora Carrington, Man Ray, Yves Tanguy, Eileen Agar, Penrose (her husband), Paul Nash, Salvador Dali, Giorgio de Chirico, Joan Miro, Pablo Picasso, Maruja Mallo, Francis Picabia, Angel Planells or Dora Maar.

The exhibition’s curator, Eleanor Clayton, noted: “The nine environments of this exhibition are configured around Miller’s fascinating biography, who after being a model and muse of Picasso or Penrose, developed a successful career as a photographer where she pioneered in linking art, fashion and journalism.”

According to Clayton, “Penrose was undoubtedly fundamental in Great Britain’s surrealist movement and one of its leading organizers,” who brought together in 1936, London’s first international Surrealist exhibition.

The Barcelona exhibition explores the introduction of Surrealism in the UK cultural scene prior to World War II, leading to the early 1950’s decade.

Lee Miller’s Miro Foundation exhibition in Barcelona will remain open to the public until Jan. 20, 2019, and boasts close to 200 exhibits including photographs, drawings, paintings, and sculptures.
