Rebelling against her wealthy New York upbringing, indulging her uncanny eye for great art and artists and becoming the enfant terrible of the modern art scene, Peggy Guggenheim lived a life almost too amazing to be believed.
Drinking, name-dropping, art, men and the men who make art – with humour, heartbreak, and grand hauteur, Anita Carey’s selected readings of Woman Before a Glass by Laney Robertson offers the sensational and unforgettable story of a woman before her time.
Directed by Mark Wing-Davey.
Produced in collaboration with Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi for the exhibition Kandinsky to Pollock. The Art of the Guggenheim Collections.
