This richly illustrated joint biography tells the story of how a fashion model turned photographer and an English Quaker turned Surrealist painter and art collector influenced modern art with their vision and passion. As they inspired each other's careers and established their home as a meeting place for the exchange of ideas among artists such as Pablo Picasso, Man Ray, Max Ernst, Paul Eluard, Joan Miro, and Saul Steinberg, Miller and Penrose created a life together that was in itself a work of art. In the book concise accounts of their lives are followed by comparisons of their works, which demonstrate their symbiotic relationship. The range of art reproduced in the book - photographs, sketches, paintings, and collages - offers a kaleidoscopic sampling of these two important oeuvres and an exquisite portrayal of a unique and uniquely productive partnership.
