Peggy Guggenheim—bohemian, socialite, curator—blazed a trail past her famous uncle’s museum. She helped launch such acclaimed modern artists as Wassily Kandinsky, Jackson Pollock, and her second husband Max Ernst, one of her many romantic involvements. This fascinating, entertaining portrait of Guggenheim’s turbulent life, many loves, and surprising career reveals a woman who was every bit the iconoclast as the artists she championed.
