Lot Essay

As a teenager, Lee Miller was already recognized as a stunning beauty, modeling frequently for the photographers Edward Steichen, George Hoyningen-Huene and Horst P. Horst. It was not until 1929, when she was the pupil of and assistant to Man Ray in Paris, that she pursued becoming a photographer.
