About the Peggy Guggenheim Collection
PGC is one of the most prestigious art collections in the world. Housed in her former home, in the stunning Palazzo Venier dei Leoni on the Grand Canal in Venice, the collection features work by some of the most ground breaking artists of the 20th century.
Always with an eye to the innovative, to that which challenges the status quo, it features major works of Cubism, Futurism, Metaphysical painting, European abstraction, avant-garde sculpture, Surrealism and American Abstract Expressionism.
The museum also contains Peggy Guggenheim’s personal collection - the art that spoke most deeply to her sense of aesthetic innovation and crativity - masterpieces from the Hannelore B. and Rudolph B. Schulhof collection, and a sculpture garden.
