One of the most fascinating women of the twentieth century, Peggy Guggenheim stands as one of the art world's most influential and flamboyant patrons. Effortlessly combining her personal and professional lives (indeed, they were almost indistinguishable) her life was marked by drama and adventure. Every aspect of that extraordinary life is reproduced in Peggy Guggenheim: A Collector's Album, beginning with her privileged childhood as a member of the wealthy and powerful Guggenheim family and ending with her settling in her Venetian palazzo on the Grand Canal. Whether posing for Man Ray or Berenice Abbott; keeping company with James Joyce, Samuel Beckett or marrying Max Ernst; or helping Jackson Pollock, Robert Motherwell or Mark Rothko to become major figures, Peggy Guggenheim had a lifetime of historic interludes with some of the most notable artists of the twentieth century. Profusely illustrated with both momentous and casual moments, the reader is afforded a look into the most private and revealing parts of Guggenheim's exceptional life.
