"One woman of the 20th century who continues to fascinate and achieve an ever-growing popularity is Peggy Guggenheim. Here, at last, is the re-publication of her personal biography. Art patron extraordinaire, who effortlessly combined the personal and professional (indeed, they were almost indistinguishable), her life was marked by drama and adventure. Every aspect of that extraordinary life is reproduced in this lavishly illustrated volume, 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 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 20th century. Illustrated with both momentous and casual moments, here are the most private and revealing parts of Guggenheim's exceptional life."
