description

Lisa Immordino Vreeland’s follow-up to her acclaimed film debut DIANA VREELAND: THE EYE HAS TO TRAVEL focuses on the life and work of Peggy Guggenheim, one of the leading figures in the modern art movement. A colourful character, Guggenheim was an heiress to her family fortune in New York but earned a name for herself as an active and influential arts patron. Her history included personal relationships with the most prominent artists of the era – Samuel Beckett, Max Ernst, Jackson Pollock, Alexander Calder, Marcel Duchamp and countless others. From showcasing the work of many of these figures in her London and New York galleries, to safeguarding artwork during the Second World War, the modern art world would certainly be a different scene today if not for Peggy Guggenheim.
