Hear about her gallery in New York and her relationships with such influential artists as Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, and Jackson Pollock. And learn how she eventually moves to Venice to an unfinished palazzo on the Grand Canal, and the Peggy Guggenheim museum is born. Please note, this lecture will not be a virtual tour of a museum.
