The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is a Modern Art Museum, situated on the Grand Canal in Venice. The Palazzo Venier dei Lenno, an unfinished Palace, is were the Museum is located and was the home of Peggy. The Museum opened in 1980.
We visited the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, during our stay in Venice, Italy, see Part I. I had permission to take these photographs in the Museum. I have chosen only a selected few images, to share with you, as the Museum obviously has an extensive range of Modern Art.
The captions are clickable and will take you to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection of each painting to view the history of the painting.
