A colourful character who was not only ahead of her time but helped to define it, Peggy Guggenheim was an American heiress who 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 personal history included such figures as Samuel Beckett, Alexander Calder and Marcel Duchamp, and was instrumental in advancing the careers of several modern artists including Jackson Pollock and Max Ernst. While fighting personal tragedy, she maintained her vision to build one of the most important collections of modern art, now enshrined in her Venetian palazzo.
