Peggy Guggenheim. Collector of the Avant-garde
On the invitation of the Ministry of Culture of Chile, an exhibition dedicated to Peggy Guggenheim’s life and collection will be mounted for the first time in South America. Approximately 80 paintings and sculptures represent the full span of her collection (Cubism, European abstraction, Surrealism, American Abstract Expressionism and post war European and American art), but have also been chosen to document major episodes in her career: her London gallery (Guggenheim Jeune), the presentation of her collection in New York (Art of This Century), her patronage of American artists, and her life in Venice. Works will be loaned by the Guggenheim museums both in New York and Venice.
