Eileen Agar was a British surrealist artist who was close friends with Lee Miller?s partner, Roland Penrose. Penrose had included her work in the 1936 `International Surrealist Exhibition? in London. The following year Miller took several photographs of Agar, of which this is one. It features the artist alongside `The Golden Tooth?; an antique, carved wooden figure of a household god, found by Agar and the Hungarian writer, Joseph Bard, in a junkshop in 1929. The figure was subsequently painted blue and decorated by the artist.
