A colourful character who was not only ahead of her time but who helped to define it, Peggy Guggenheim was an heiress to a family fortune and she became a central figure in the modern art movement. As she moved through the cultural upheaval of the 20th century, she collected not only art, but artists. Her colourful personal history included such figures as Samuel Beckett, Max Ernst, Jackson Pollock, Alexander Calder, Marcel Duchamp as well as countless others. While fighting personal tragedy, she maintained her vision, to build one of the most important collections of modern art, which is now enshrined in her Venetian palazzo.

 

Reviews

An extraordinary story. I was on the edge of my seat.
- The Guardian
Nearly any chapter of Peggy Guggenheim's extraordinary life could fill a feature-length film: the childhood shaped by wealth, eccentricity and her philandering father's death on the Titanic; her own difficult marriages and parenthood; and, especially, her pivotal role as an art collector, patron and gallerist.... at once a capsule history of Modernism and a poignant personal portrait.
