Peggy Guggenheim: The Last Dogaressa

Peggy Guggenheim. The Last Dogaressa
Until January 27, 2020
Peggy Guggenheim Collection | Venice, Italy

Peggy Guggenheim settled in Venice in 1948 after having closed her museum-gallery Art of This Century (1942-47) in New York.

The exhibition celebrates Peggy Guggenheim's Venetian life, shedding light on how she significantly continued to add works of art to her collection.

It presents a selection of paintings, sculptures and works on paper that Guggenheim acquired from the late 1940s to 1979, the year in which she passed away. It also recalls the milestone events and exhibitions that she organized and participated in.

Focusing on the last three decades of Guggenheim's acquisitions, the exhibition offers an unparalleled opportunity to revisit and re-contextualize renowned masterpieces.

These comprise René Magritte's Empire of Light (1953-54) and Duchamp's Box in a Valise (1941) alongside rarely exhibited works by artists such as René Brô, Gwyther Irwin, and Grace Hartigan, as well as the Japanese-born Kenzo Okada and Tomonori Toyofuku, thus conveying Guggenheim's interest in art beyond Europe and the United States.
