5.0 out of 5 stars Art and Peggy in the C20th
I can't agree with the other reviewer. Peggy Guggenheim was important for her position as a promoter of modern art after WW2. This is a most interesting book which puts her life into context along with the artists of the period particularly those that fled the Holocaust. If you don't like art history I don't know why you would want to read about her as art was what she...

1.0 out of 5 stars An Essay on Modern Art
If you would like to read the life of Peggy Guggenheim then do not buy this book. It is an essay on modern art during the life of Peggy Guggenheim.
It is a very well researched book but it fails to give the life of Peggy Guggenheim. It is filled with too much details on arts and artists and their interconnections and influence on the 19th century modern art that at...

This review is from: Peggy Guggenheim: The Life of an Art Addict (Paperback)
I can't agree with the other reviewer. Peggy Guggenheim was important for her position as a promoter of modern art after WW2. This is a most interesting book which puts her life into context along with the artists of the period particularly those that fled the Holocaust. If you don't like art history I don't know why you would want to read about her as art was what she was about and why her museum in Venice attracts a stream of visitors.
A great and informative read.

1.0 out of 5 stars An Essay on Modern Art, 7 Dec. 2007
This review is from: Peggy Guggenheim: The Life of an Art Addict (Paperback)
If you would like to read the life of Peggy Guggenheim then do not buy this book. It is an essay on modern art during the life of Peggy Guggenheim.
It is a very well researched book but it fails to give the life of Peggy Guggenheim. It is filled with too much details on arts and artists and their interconnections and influence on the 19th century modern art that at the end of the book I feel as if I know very little about the life of the collector.
I'm sure that an arts student or someone who has the basics to understand who's who the book is talking about would enjoy it.
I didn't. It took me three months to read and believe me I read it for the simple reason that I wanted to finish the book.

This review is from: Peggy Guggenheim: The Life of an Art Addict (Paperback)
I now want to read a biography to perhaps get a truer picture - there's a somewhat self-serving element to this autobiography.
