The life of Lee Miller
"Possibly the best speaker in 30 years!" This was a comment made by one of our most valued members, David Silk, when he gave a vote of thanks to Antony Penrose who was our speaker last Monday. Antony presented the life of his mother, Lee Miller, and his father, Roland Penrose. Lee, a model and photographer, and Roland, were close friends of many famous artists such as Picasso, and Antony's talk told of many personal stories illustrated with pictures taken by Lee and Roland and others such as Man Ray and Picasso himself. Some of the photos taken by Lee during the holocaust made for an emotional response from the audience. Such a powerful story told so eloquently by Antony. A superb evening enjoyed by our members together with visitors from several local clubs.
