Prose, Francine. Peggy Guggenheim: The Shock of the Modern

Yale University

Pap. 2016

Book ID: 100457

Acclaimed best-selling author Francine Prose offers a singular reading of Guggenheims life that will enthrall enthusiasts of twentieth-century art, as well as anyone interested in American and European culture and the interrelationships between them. The lively and insightful narrative follows Guggenheim through virtually every aspect of her extraordinary life, from her unique collecting habits and paradigm-changing discoveries, to her celebrity friendships, failed marriages, and scandalous affairs, and Prose delivers a colorful portrait of a defiantly uncompromising woman who maintained a powerful upper hand in a male-dominated world. Prose also explores the ways in which Guggenheims image was filtered through the lens of insidious antisemitism.
