Patron of Art - Behind the Collection
We stay in Venice for our March collection, and celebrate one of its most famous residents, Peggy Guggenheim.
From the 1940’s, Guggenheim was a major patron of modern art. Without her, the genius of abstract artists such as Jackson Pollock and Max Ernst may never have been discovered.
Equally known for her own personal sense of style and love of the bizarre, we imagine her holding court at one of her soirees in her Venetian palazzo. Guggenheim’s passion for painting and sculpture is reflected in our bold use of colour and dynamic painterly prints.
We sourced a vintage artwork of painted roses for our Dipinto Print.
The artists that Peggy supported inspired our print handwriting for various styles throughout the collection.
Peggy’s colourful life is mapped out on this original print that we painted in-house.
