by Anthony Penrose | 03 May 2022
PAPERBACK
Insights into the home of surrealists Lee Miller and Roland Penrose. Following the austere and traumatic years of World War II, surrealists Lee Miller and Roland Penrose made their home at Farleys in the Sussex countryside. Penrose, a painter, author, and collector, and Miller, a photographer and war correspondent, moved to Farleys not to settle down, but to create, entertain, and inspire. In this book their son, Antony Penrose, recalls visitors and occasions at Farleys with a fascinating insight into his parents' lives. This accessible book includes images of the array of visitors during the 1950s against the backdrop of Farleys as it transforms from a traditional farmhouse into a twentieth-century international hub of art with unexpected innovative decoration, surreal living, and daring.
