12. Art of the Deal - PART 3 - Peggy Guggenheim

Welcome to the Jo’s Art History Podcast, a podcast which celebrates all things art historical every single day!

On today’s episode, Jo brings you PART 3 of her 'Art of the Deal' series which sees Jo delve into some of art history’s greatest dealers!

Today - it’s time to introduce you to the INCREDIBLE and ICONIC Peggy Guggenheim who, although better known for her collector status, was a key driving force for promoting the work of the Surrealists and Abstract artists of Europe in the USA. In the same vein, she was also key in promoting the work of the American Abstract Expressionist in Europe when she relocated in the late 1940s to Venice!

In this episode, Jo takes you on a whistle stop tour of Peggy’s life talking about the tragedies, relationships and artists which made her who she was.

Does she deserve to be considered as one of the greatest art dealers of all times? Jo certainly thinks so, but what do you think?
