Located on Venice’s Grand Canal, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection is one of Europe’s premier museums devoted to modern art. With the 18th-century palazzo that houses it, the collection was bequeathed to the foundation by Peggy Guggenheim (niece of Solomon R. Guggenheim) in 1976. The museum was inaugurated in 1980, and it presents Peggy Guggenheim’s personal collection of 20th-century art, masterpieces from the Gianni Mattioli Collection, the Nasher Sculpture Garden, as well as temporary exhibitions. With masterpieces ranging in style from Cubism and Surrealism to Abstract Expressionism, the collection has become one of the most respected and visited cultural attractions in Venice. The Foundation also owns and operates the U.S. Pavilion of the Venice Biennale.
