The show

It is always assumed that Venice is the ideal place for a honeymoon. This is a grave error. To live in Venice or even to visit it means that you fall in love with the city itself. There is nothing left over in your heart for anyone else. (Peggy Guggenheim, Out of This Century: Confessions of an Art Addict)

With the exhibition "Peggy Guggenheim. The Last Dogaressa", the Peggy Guggenheim Collection celebrates the Venetian life of its founder, highlighting the events and the exhibitions that marked the thirty years she spent in Venice, from 1948 to 1979, which proved to be authentic milestones in the history of 20th century art.

The exhibition focuses on Guggenheim’s collecting after 1948, once she closed her museum/gallery Art of This Century (1942-47), left New York, and moved to Venice. More than sixty works by famous and lesser-known artists will be exhibited, including paintings, sculptures, and works on paper selected from those Guggenheim acquired from the late 1940s through 1979, when she passed away.
