A visual biography of the great patron and collector

This book offers a thorough visual biography of the life of Peggy Guggenheim (1898–1979) as collector, through a selection of works from the world-renowned collection she established primarily between 1938 and 1946, and to which she would continue to add for the rest of her life.

The selections from her collection, emphasizing lesser-known works, are accompanied by a series of previously unpublished photographs from her life during periods spent living in London, Paris and her native New York, as well as Venice, where she settled with her collection in 1949 and spent her remaining 30 years.

Each period of Guggenheim’s life is examined through contributions from 13 international scholars and researchers, which, along with the photographs, provide new insights into her colorful and impressive career building one of the world’s most significant and widely visited personal art collections.

In 'The Last Dogaressa,' a fascinating visual biography of the visionary gallerist, collector and philanthropist Peggy Guggenheim

This 1960s photograph of Peggy Guggenheim in the library of Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, the eighteenth-century Venetian manor where she lived and opened her renowned collection to the public for the last thirty years of her life, is reproduced from The Last Dogaressa, the inspiring visual biography of one of the twentieth century's greatest forward-moving forces in art and culture. Filled with archival photographs of Guggenheim throughout her many international incarnations as groundbreaking gallerist, philanthropist, muse and collector, it also contains dozens of reproductions of the challenging, often historic artworks she collected and promoted throughout her lifetime. In this particular photograph, one can see Modernist artworks comfortably situated among works from Africa and Oceania. continue to blog
