From Library Journal:

Peggy Guggenheim was among the most intriguing cultural figures of her day?as intriguing as the vast collection of modern art she amassed over her lifetime. Her granddaughter pays her a fitting tribute in this lavishly illustrated volume with photos of family and friends, stunning reproductions of artworks (by Robert Motherwell, Jackson Pollock, Pablo Picasso, and others), and facsimiles from her famous guest books (including entries from such notables as Marc Chagall, Max Ernst, and Ned Rorem). The account of Guggenheim's life is absorbing, exploring her ties within the international art community, her personal life, the stories behind many of her acquisitions of modern abstract works, and her romance with the city of Venice. This is all presented with beauty, charm, and candor, providing an empathetic acquaintance with this remarkable woman, whose striking collection is a continual delight for visitors to La Serenissima. An essay by Thomas M. Messer, former director of the Guggenheim Foundation, provides an illuminating close to the book. Essential for art lovers.?Carol J. Binkowski, Bloomfield, NJ
