Confessions of an Art Addict

Peggy Guggenheim

Overview

Born into immense wealth and educated on modern art by Marcel Duchamp, Peggy Guggenheim was someone for whom art was literally in her blood. Now, we can get a first-person tour through the world of a modern art titan.

Over the decades, Peggy Guggenheim nurtured an unknown Jackson Pollock, orchestrated Kandinksy's first one-man show in England, and maintained relationships with Samuel Beckett and Max Ernst. Confessions of an Art Addict covers the art patron's life, from her early-1900s childhood spent in the bosom of the wealthy Guggenheim and Seligman clans, to the establishment of her museum in Venice.

Favorite Quote

"The face of art has been transformed. It is natural that this should have come about, as a result of the industrial revolution. Art mirrors its age, therefore it had to change completely, as the world changed so vastly and so quickly."
