Peggy Guggenheim

Peggy and Venice.

For Guggenheim it was love at first sight, an American heiress famous for her extravagant eyewear and hers of poodles, she arrives in Venice with works by Max Ernst (a former husband), Chagall, Picasso, De Chirico, Duchamps, Giacometti, etc…

Art admirer will find some fascinating work here, and the galleries occupy Peggy Guggenheim Collection’s wonderful former home, the 18th-century Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, right on the Grand Canal.
