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.
