Who Was Lee Miller?
Known for her portraits of Pablo Picasso, Lee Miller was an American photographer and fashion model. Although Miller is best known as the lover of Man Ray, she made a name for herself as a photographer after World War II by documenting war-ravaged Europe.
On April 23, 1907, Elizabeth Miller was born in Poughkeepsie, NY, and later studied art at Vassar College and the Art Students League. In the late 1920s, she became a model for Vogue because of her beauty. Later, Miller moved to Paris to study with Man Ray.
After three years, she fell in love with a photographer and fell into a milieu that included Picasso, Max Ernst, and Joan Miró. After returning to New York in 1932, she established a photography studio and began specializing in advertising and portraiture.
1940, Miller began working for British Vogue after marrying the Surrealist Roland Penrose. The Dachau concentration camp was one of the first places Miller captured photographic evidence of the Holocaust as a war correspondent.
In Chiddingly, United Kingdom, she passed away on July 21, 1977. Her photographs can be found in the collections of the J. Claude Getty Museum in Los Angeles, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
It will be fantastic to see Kate as Lee Miller in the movie. But for now, let’s wish her a speedy recovery from the accident.
