    The Best of Peggy Guggenheim to date

    Well written, insightful and very entertaining. The life of Peggy Guggenheim has been examined before but never to my mind with such a sympathetic eye.

    Wonderful biography

    When one hears the name Guggenheim, you think of the Frank Lloyd Wright Guggenheim Museum. But now I will also think of Peggy Guggenheim, a collector that helped birth and nurse Modernism and Abstract art into Europe and America.

    A bohemian by lifestyle, she flaunted the morels and mores of second generation American Jewish Germans, using her name and her money to live a good life. Stingy she might have been, but she personaly saved many fleeing the Nazis during the war. Friends with anarchists, socialists and well-heeled aristcrats all over the world, she knew them all from Man Ray to Yoko Ono, and was a major supporter and proponent of Jackson Pollock.

    She is portrayed realisticly in this biography and well documented in its extant endnotes and wonderful pictures. Mary Dearborn has done it again, a book well deserving of praise
