Item Details
'Portrait of Space' was taken on Lee Miller's trip to the Siwa oasis in 1937. The portrait is of a landscape, not a person, though the shape of the clouds recalls the lips of Miller floating in the sky, and two hillocks on the right can be seen as a pair of eyes. The gaping hole in the fly screen is also a kind of eye, opening on the scene. It can be found at Petit Ermitage.
