Antony Penrose's record of his parent's home and art collection. Lee Miller and Roland Penrose's home in East Sussex was an important, creative base for surrealist art and visitors included Picasso, Max Ernst, Man Ray, Joan Miro, Paul Eluard, and Henry Moore. Miller and Penrose housed their renowned collection of painting and scupture at Farlery. Penrose's provides memories and anecdotes from his time growing up here and places them alongside his mother's photographs and specially commissioned images by Alen Mac Weeney, as well as details of the art collection.
