Peggy Guggenheim

An other eccentric and inspiring woman was Peggy Guggenheim. She was a bohemian and socialite american woman borne in to a wealthy family. During her years she created a big and famous art collection primarily between 1938 and 1946. In 1949 after some years in Europe she moved her whole collection to Venice in Italy and opened up for the public. Peggy died in Venice in 1979.
I just love her for her strong business mind and for her cool style. Love her glasses!!!

Even found a very old picture of me from Swedish Elle 2006 with Peggy's glasses :)
