Community Partners: Edward Hopper House Art Center, Rockland Center for the Arts
The heiress Peggy Guggenheims life was intertwined with art. During her travels, she fell in with the Dadaists in Paris in the 1920s, and is credited with introducing Britain to Modern Art. Back in New York, she gave first shows in her gallery to every major Abstract Expressionist. A shrewd collector, she moved to Venice where she bought a palazzo and created a museum of her works. A sleek portrait of the ultimate arts patron.
As this films engrossing character study makes clear, this woman of extraordinary tastes and appetites was ahead of her time, in more ways than one. . . . Michael OSullivan, Washington Post
