Peggy Guggenheim : a celebration by Karole P. B Vail ( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Born into a wealthy New York family, Peggy - whose Uncle Solomon would establish the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation - participated in the cultural ferment of life in London and Paris during the 192Os and 193Os. Her friends included many of the most significant avant-garde figures of the era, such as Samuel Beckett and Marcel Duchamp. In London, she ran Guggenheim Jeune, her cutting-edge gallery devoted to contemporary art. During the months surrounding the outbreak of World War II, Peggy accelerated her purchases of abstract and Surrealist art until she was buying virtually one work every day, eventually amassing one of the most important collections of Modern art in private hands. After escaping to New York in the company of Max Ernst, she established the gallery Art of This Century, which from 1942 to 1947 featured her collection as well as the first or early solo exhibitions for such artists as Robert Motherwell, Jackson Pollock, and Mark Rothko." "In 1948, Peggy settled permanently in Venice, where her home, the eighteenth-century Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, would become the Peggy Guggenheim Collection after her death in 1979. The collection is now one of the most celebrated for visitors to Venice. Vail's essay provides important new information on the Venice years, during which Peggy kept guest books that record the visits of an astonishing array of international personalities. Pages from these guest books - published here for the first time - include unique drawings by such artists as Marc Chagall, Jean Cocteau, and Saul Weinberg."--BOOK JACKET

Robert Motherwell : early collages by Robert Motherwell ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Devoted exclusively to papier collés and related works on paper from the 1940s and early 1950s by Robert Motherwell, this exhibition features nearly sixty artworks and examines the American artist's origins and his engagement with collage. The exhibition also honors Peggy Guggenheim's early patronage of the artist. At her urging, and under the tutelage of émigré Surrealist artist Matta, Motherwell first experimented with the papier collé technique. He recalled years later: "I might never have done it otherwise, and it was here that I found... my 'identity.'" By cutting, tearing, and layering pasted papers, Motherwell reflected the tumult and violence of the modern world, establishing him as an essential and original voice in postwar American art. 0Exhibition: Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice, Italy (26.5.-8.9.2013) / Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, NYC, USA (27.9.-5.1.2014). 0
