About the Movie

Lisa Immordino Vreeland follows up her acclaimed debut "Diana Vreeland: The Eye has to Travel" with PEGGY GUGGENHEIM: ART ADDICT. A colorful character who was not only ahead of her time but helped to define it, Peggy Guggenheim 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 colorful personal history included 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.

Fresh: If the documentary isn't especially deep, maybe that's because its subject wasn't. – Mark Feeney, Boston Globe, Nov 19, 2015

Fresh: As this film's engrossing character study makes clear, this woman of extraordinary tastes and appetites was ahead of her time, in more ways than one. – Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, Dec 3, 2015

Terrific documentary

I had only a basic knowledge of Peggy Guggenheim before I saw this documentary. And very candidly, most of what I knew was based on Amy Madigan’s performance in Ed Harris’ brilliant biopic Pollock. So what a pleasure it was to discover this well-crafted documentary, with the bonus of hearing Ms. Guggenheim tell her story in her own words. What a truly inspiring woman she was: a true, forward-thinking original who was decades ahead of her time. Kudos and thank you to the filmmakers.
