An insider's look at Peggy Guggenheim: A Collection in Venice

Archive for January 31, 2011

Bon voyage, Peggy!

All good things must come to an end, and so today we bid farewell to Peggy Guggenheim: A Collection in Venice.

It has been a very exciting time working behind the scenes at the Art Gallery and sharing some insight with you. It was a sad day today as I helped pack up the gift shop and realised that I will actually have to jump on a plane to see Peggy’s collection again (though Venice does sound like a gorgeous city).

I’d like to thank everyone who let me interview and photograph them, as well as you, the readers. The Art Gallery thrives on your support, and we hope that we’ll see you again this September when the second exhibition in the Great Collections of the World Series comes together: Princely Treasures: European Masterpieces 1600-1800 from the V&A.

In the meantime, be sure to catch Year 12 Perspectives 2010, and cast your vote in the People’s Choice Award.
