Product story

This engaging DVD tells the remarkable story of Peggy Guggenheim, an heiress turned art collector who links artists such as Salvidor Dali from the Surrealists with the likes of Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko of the Abstract Expressionists. In fact, as Guggenheim herself reveals, it was she who saved Pollock from working as a carpenter from in her uncle's museum. This is one of many extraordinary stories shared in this revealing feature length documentary.
