Peggy Guggenheim, Behind the Scenes
One new book shows photos by Stefan Moses between 1969 and 1974.
News 08 Nov 2018

We’ve all seen Peggy’s documentary and countless photos of her posing in her kooky sunglasses along her Lhasa Apsos in Venice. But now, one new book uncovers her life behind the scenes.
Encounters With Peggy Guggenheim, published by Hardie Grant Press in the UK, shows photos by Stefan Moses, a photographer who visited Venice to shoot the acclaimed art collector between 1969 and 1974.

These color snapshots show her day to day, from walking to San Marco Square to chilling by the Grand Canal, fixing her hair. Most photos here capture art in her own home, from the Alexander Calder headboard on her bed to her Kandinsky paintings and more.
As Moses follows her through Venice, it’s like an insider paparazzi romp through one of the art world’s most glamorous women.

As she once said: “It is always assumed that Venice is the ideal place for a honeymoon. This is a grave error. To live in Venice or even to visit it means that you fall in love with the city itself. There is nothing left over in your heart for anyone else.”
