Peggy Guggenheim, 1924

Not only was Peggy Guggenheim ahead of her time but she was the woman who helped to define it. She discovered and nurtured a new generation of artists producing a new kind of art. Through collecting not only art but often the artists themselves, her life was as radical as her collection. Join Alexandra Epps, art lecturer and official guide at Tate Modern and Tate Britain Galleries for a unique story of art and life and the evolution of a remarkable modern art collection, still housed today in the heart of her beloved Venice.

Peggy Guggenheim

Her singular career spanned the modern era, linking the Dada and Surrealist movements with Abstract Expressionism. She collected and championed artists from Vasily Kandinsky to Jackson Pollock to Yves Tanguy, and from Paris to London she quickly amassed one of the most prominent collections of Cubist & Surrealist art, during a period when few others saw their worth.
