Peggy Guggen­heim Col­lec­tion, Venice

Travel Bulletin - - EUROPE -

As art pa­trons go, Peggy Guggen­heim had an eye for the greats. Pi­casso, Pol­lock, Miro, Kandin­sky and other bo­hemian masters of the mod­ernist era quickly caught the eye of this wealthy Amer­i­can heiress. She also had an eye for real es­tate, and her home on the Grand Canal of Venice is now one of the most spec­tac­u­larly lo­cated gal­leries in the world. Don’t miss: Jack­son Pol­lock’s Alchemy, one of the in­tense drip paint­ings that came to de­fine his style and a fine ex­am­ple of why Guggen­heim be­came a cham­pion of his work.
