Portraits of Lee Miller by Picasso 1937

Roland Penrose visited Picasso's studio in Paris and bought one of the best portrait of Lee Miller for £50. Roland shipped it to Lee in Cairo where she was at the time. The colorful painting stunned her friends who could not understand Picasso's modern sense but when Roland's and Lee's son Antony saw the portrait, he instantly shouted with joy. ' Mummy! Mummy!'

There are several portraits of Lee by Picasso.
