It is with great pleasure that the Art Gallery of Western Australia is able to introduce to local audiences and visitors to Perth the opportunity to view, for the first time in the Southern Hemisphere, key holdings of one of the most respected and cherished collections of twentieth-century art.
The publication explores Peggy Guggenheim's collection of paintings and sculptures, which includes the works of artists who are now household names, such as Picasso, Brancusi, Giacometti, Magritte, Ernst, Rothko and Pollock. Peggy Guggenheim: A Collection in Venice offers both a fantastic overview of European and American abstract and Expressionist art from the 1910s to the 1950s and an insightful look into Peggy Guggenheims atypical personality and her patronage and passions as a collector.
Written by Philip Rylands and Grazina Subelyte with a forward by Stefano Carboni, Richard Armstrong and Philip Rylands.
