Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict

In the late 1970s, American art icon Peggy Guggenheim gave what was to become the last interview of her life for Jaqueline B. Weld's authorised biography Peggy: The Wayward Guggenhein. The tapes were long thought to be lost.

Now the never heard before footage has been discovered and forms part of a fascinating feature documentary about the unbelievable life of one of the most vibrant figures in modern art. Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict comes to DVD and VOD on 22 February 2016 courtesy of Dogwoof.

A colourful character who was not only ahead of her time but helped to define it, Peggy Guggenheim (1898-1979) was an heiress to her family fortune, who became a central figure in the modern art movement. As she moved through the cultural upheaval of the 20th century, she collected not only art, but artists.

Her colourful personal history included trysts, affairs and marriages with such figures as Samuel Beckett, Max Ernst, Jackson Pollock, Alexander Calder, Marcel Duchamp as well as countless others. While fighting through personal tragedy, she maintained her vision to build one of the most important collections of modern art, now enshrined in her Venetian palazzo.

Directed by Lisa Immordino Vreeland, this thoroughly engrossing and often moving documentary is a compendium of the greatest 20th century art, mixed with the wild and iconoclastic life of one of the most powerful women in the history of the art world.
