This documentary series tells the story of intimate and tumultuous love stories in the context of art history. Each of the couples in this collection answer the same questions: is love compatible with creation? Can artists reveal themselves through romantic passion? Does love bring a renewed energy to art?
Man Ray and Lee Miller is the story of a passionate love affair which revealed the talents of an artist who was overlooked by the public for too long. He was a painter, filmmaker, and above all one of the greatest surrealist photographers of the 20th century. She was the femme fatale, the ice maiden, a model featured on the front page of the world’s top fashion magazines.
