Peggy Guggenheim Collection

From Standing Room Only, 1:34 pm on 26 July 2015

Arts patron Peggy Guggenheim bequeathed her art-filled home in Venice to the city when she died, leaving it in the hands of a trust to manage. It's now the city's second biggest tourist attractions, and its Picassos, Manets and Pollocks offer an alternative to the classical art and architecture that Venice is famous for. The Peggy Guggenheim Collection's Director, Philip Rylands, talks about the art and the extraordinary woman behind it.
