Lee Miller (Poughkeepsie, 1907 - Chiddingly, 1977), model, photographer, muse, and first woman war reporter to document the horrors of the concentration camps liberated by American troops, is an authentic icon of the twentieth century. To her and her extraordinary existence, full of passion and determination, Palazzo Franchetti dedicates an exhibition in honor of her talent, too often overshadowed by the presence in her life of Man Ray, first his teacher, then lover and finally great friend. The exhibition curated by Victoria Noel-Johnson, produced and organized by CMS.Cultura in collaboration with ACP - Art Capital Partners Palazzo Franchetti - main sponsor Unipol Group - presents around 140 photographs by Lee Miller and Man Ray, including art objects and video documents, loaned by the Lee Miller Archives and the Marconi Foundation.
