Synopsis:
Lisa Immordino Vreeland follows up her acclaimed debut "Diana Vreeland: The Eye has to Travel" with "Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict". A colorful character who was not only ahead of her time but helped to define it, Peggy Guggenheim was an heiress to her family fortune who became a central figure in the modern art movement. As she moved through the cultural upheaval of the 20th century, she collected not only art, but artists. Her colorful personal history included such figures as Samuel Beckett, Max Ernst, Jackson Pollock, Alexander Calder, Marcel Duchamp as well as countless others.
While fighting through personal tragedy, she maintained her vision to build one of the most important collections of modern art, now enshrined in her Venetian palazzo.

Portrait of a Singular Woman - Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict review by MW

Spoiler Alert
22/03/2016

Absorbing documentary account of the inspired and rackety life of the heiress who through a mixture of good taste - despite the sniffy condescension of at least one envious art critic - and good luck acquired one of the most remarkable art collections ever. Refreshingly, Guggenheim bought pictures and sculpture for pleasure rather than as investments and was in the vanguard of appreciating Surrealism and, later, Abstract Expressionism. Her astonishing, if rather tragic, love life, despite her plain looks, was something of a work of art too.
