Picnic, Mougins France

This photo fills me with joy. It was taken by Lee Miller in 1937 and sent to me from San Francisco from friend Julie as a birthday card last month.

Roland Penrose, Lee Miller’s husband is looking up in ethereal reflective manner. In the photo are: Nusch and Paul Eluard, Roland Penrose, Man Ray and Ady Fidelin.

Soon I expect this image won’t be able to be bought as a card, which saddens me. Full of joy, sensuality and life. Lee Miller had such an incredible life. I am going to visit Farley House in East Sussex as soon as it opens again. It is where Picasso, Miro and Man Ray visited and where Lee brought up her son Anthony. It is also where she died. Her life fascinates me.
