Roland Penrose met Lee Miller's lips a year before he met the rest of her - in a painting by Man Ray.
It was a fitting introduction for two artists who were linked by an art movement that delighted in chance encounters. Together they forged a life joined by a common cause - surrealism.
This illustrated joint biography tells the story of how a fashion model turned photographer and an English Quaker turned art collector and surrealist painter influenced modern art with their vision and passion, and created a life together that was in itself a work of art.
