The Guggenheim Museum is famous all over the world. It is headquartered in the Guggenheim Museum in New York and has branches in Bilbao, Italy, Venice, Berlin, Las Ville and Abuza, Spain. It can be said to be a "chain museum".
Guggenheim is not a person, but a big family. It is the second richest Jewish family in the world after Rothschild.
Peggy Guggenheim is the niece of Solomon Guggenheim, founder of the Guggenheim Foundation. Born in New York in 1898, his father, Benjamin Guggenheim, was killed in the sinking of the Titanic in 1912.
At the beginning of 1939, World War II had already started. While artists were selling their works to cash in for their lives, Peggy set herself the goal of "painting every day" and rushed to the artist's studio every day to collect all the works of interest for herself. In 1948, she bought Palazzo Venier de I Leoni as her personal residence by the Grand Canal in Venice. For the next 30 years, Peggy Guggenheim continued to collect art and support the artistic creation of Europe and the United States. Her collection covers almost all the important schools and works of artists in Europe and the United States in the 20th century, and is one of the greatest contemporary art collectors in this century. In 1969, she donated the Legacy Collection and the building to the Guggenheim Foundation, and eventually died in 1979. The ashes were buried in the garden corner of the residence.Bole of modern art.Italian Peggy Guggenheim Museum of Art
