Man Ray | Lee Miller, Partners in Surrealism

On view June 11, 2011 to December 4, 2011

Located in the: Special Exhibition Galleries

From 1929 to 1932, Man Ray and Lee Miller -- two giants of the European Surrealism movement -- lived together in Paris, first as teacher and student, and later as lovers. Their mercurial relationship resulted in some of the most powerful work of each artist's career, and helped shape the course of modern art and photography. Combining rare vintage photographs, paintings, sculpture and drawings, this exhibition tells the story of the artists' brief but intense association and reveals the nature of their creative partnership.

Support provided by the East India Marine Associates of the Peabody Essex Museum.
