The big, colorful life of Peggy Guggenheim—art patron, collector, and sexually liberated bon vivant—jumps off the screen in this “sleek, entertaining” portrait (The New York Times) by Lisa Immordino Vreeland (Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel). Weaving together commentary by curators, a long-lost series of Guggenheim interviews, and archival footage of her friends (and often lovers)—among them Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Jean Cocteau, and Jackson Pollock—Vreeland constructs a fascinating picture of a fierce champion of modern art and a devotee of the tangled personal relationship.
2015. 97 minutes. Lisa Immordino Vreeland. Submarine Deluxe. USA/Italy/UK. English. .
