December 17, 2015

by Sallie Bingham

And what a woman she was. The new documentary, Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict, using tapes recorded at the end of her life—and mysteriously “lost” in a basement—reveals her as a truth-teller, and a woman with a superb, intuitive eye for the vast changes in painting that happened, largely in New York, over her lifetime.
