Peggy Guggenheim Collection

The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is the name not only of the collection of one of the most influential art patrons of the 20th century, Peggy Guggenheim, but also of the museum in Venice, which is housed in Peggy Guggenheim’s former home, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, on the Grand Canal in Venice. At the core of the museum’s holdings is Peggy Guggenheim’s unrivaled collection of modern art, which she gave to her uncle’s foundation in 1976, and which remains permanently housed in her former palazzo on the Grand Canal in Venice.
