Out of This Century: Confessions of an Art Addict, Paperback / softback Book

Out of This Century: Confessions of an Art Addict Paperback / softback


This is the fascinating autobiography of a society heiress who became the bohemian doyenne of the art world.

Written in her own words it is the frank and outspoken story of her life and loves: her stormy relationships with such men as Max Ernst and Jackson Pollock, and her discovery of new artists. Known as "the mistress of modern art", Peggy Guggenheim was a passionate collector and major patron.

She amassed one of the most important collections of early twentieth century European and American art embracing cubism, surrealism and expressionism. A must read for anyone with an interest in these major-league artists, this seminal period of art history, and the ultimate self-invented woman.
