"Surrealist Lee Miller",the retrospective dedicated to one of the most important photographers of the twentieth century, comes to Italy for the first time. The exhibition consists of 101 images that trace the entire artistic career of the photographer, through her most famous and iconic shots.  

Launched by Condé Nast on the cover of "Vogue" in 1927, Lee Miller immediately became one of the most popular models in the fashion industry. Miller started traveling to participate in photo shoots that became history, until, two years later, she decided to move over the other side of the camera and become a photographer herself. Struck by the images of Man Ray, one of the most important Surrealist photographers, she was able to meet him, and immediately she became his muse and above all collaborator. Together they developed the solarization technique. A friend of Picasso, Ernst, Cocteau, Miró and the entire surrealistclique, after her time in Paris, Lee Miller decided to return to New York to open her own studio. World War II photojournalist accredited with the US Army, Miller was the first female photographer to document the liberation of Dachau’s and Buchenwald’s concentration camps. She also followed the Allies during the discovery of Hitler's apartmentsin which was taken what probably became her most famous photograph, Lee in the bathtub of the Führer.
