About this title


One of the most fascinating women of the twentieth century, Peggy Guggenheim was one of the art world's most influential and flamboyant patrons. Effortlessly combining her personal and professional lives (indeed, they were almost indistinguishable), her life was marked by drama and adventure. Every aspect of that extraordinary life is reproduced in Peggy Guggenheim: A Collector's Album, beginning with her privileged childhood as a member of the wealthy and powerful Guggenheim family and ending with her settling in her Venetian palazzo on the Grand Canal.

About the Author:

Laurence Tacou Rumney is a journalist and writer who has contributed to Le Monde and Vogue among other magazines and newspapers. She lives and works in Paris, France with her husband, who is Peggy Guggenheim's grandson.
