Now in Paperback This lavishly illustrated book explores a century of modern art through the exceptional holdings of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice. Engaging, accessible essays introduce a range of art-historical issues, from the depiction of women in Impressionist works to the Guggenheim's influential role in presenting new artistic currents, such as Minimalist, Conceptual and site-specific art. Also recounted are the fascinating stories of Solomon R. Guggenheim, who championed abstract art in the United States, and his flamboyant niece Peggy Guggenheim, an equally important art patron, as well as the saga of the design process and building of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, one of Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpieces.
