Book summary: Perhaps the most important museum in Italy for European and American art of the first half of the twentieth century, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection is located in its founder's former home, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, on the Grand Canal in Venice. Opened in 1951 by the niece of Solomon R Guggenheim, the wealthy American industrialist and art collector, the museum presents Peggy Guggenheim's personal collection of twentieth-century art, masterpieces from the Gianni Mattioli collection, the Nasher Sculpture Garden, as well as temporary exhibitions. This publication acts as a guide to the collection, which contains masterpieces of Cubism, Futurism, Metaphysical painting, European Abstraction, Surrealism, and American Abstract Expressionism. Among the artists represented are Picasso, Braque, Duchamp, Léger, Brancusi, Severini, Balla, Delaunay, Kupka, Picabia, Mondrian, Kandinsky, Arp, Miró, Giacometti, Klee, Ernst, Magritte, Dalí, Pollock, Rothko, Calder, Moore, and Marini.
