Lovers in the Abstract: Peggy Guggenheim, Marcel Duchamp & Jackson Pollock   

Peggy Guggenheim was a daring charismatic woman of wealth and intelligence who knew a thing or two about art and artists (after all, she was married to Max Ernst). Peggy hired the revolutionary French artist Marcel Duchamp to be her mentor and collected his early works.
One of her most brilliant insights was to see the potential of the American Abstract/Expressionist painter Jackson Pollock, and to become his patron. Pollock remains one of the most influential painters in American art history.
This series of lectures brings together these three dynamic personalities. Explore the importance of Guggenheim’s vision, Duchamp’s extraordinary imagination, and Pollock’s importance in the journey of post-WWII American art.
