Peggy Guggenheim Museum, Venice

Located in the unfinished 18th– century Palazzo Venier dei Leoni on the Grand Canal in Venice, the Guggenheim Museum was the home of American heiress Peggy Guggenheim and her extraordinary art collection for 30 years. After Peggy’s death in 1979, the building and its collection were transformed into a museum. Made up mainly of Italian futurist and American modernist works (i.e., Cubism, Surrealism, abstract expressionism) by artists such as Jackson Pollock, Max Ernst, De Chirico, Picasso, Magritte, Mirò and Mondrian, the Guggenheim collection is a welcome modern alternative to the medieval and Renaissance art of Venice. Buona visita!
