Description Bringing together unique and rarely seen photographs, paintings, sculpture and drawings, this exquisite book was produced to accompany the exhibition of the same name organised by the Peabody Essex Museum in 2012. Historically, Miller has been described as Man Ray's muse, but Partners in Surrealism reveals how their brief, mercurial love affair was a key source of mutual and sustained inspiration, resulting in some of the most powerful work of each artist's career. Featuring a candid and poignant contribution from Antony Penrose on the relationship between Man Ray and his parents in later years, this is an extraordinary exploration of the love, lust and desire that drove the art of the Surrealists.
