The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is one of the most important museums of European and American art of the twentieth century in Italy. After the long closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it reopened to the public on June 2nd, 2020.

The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is located on the Grand Canal between the Accademia Bridge and the Church of Santa Maria della Salute. Palazzo Venier dei Leoni is the building that houses the museum, known for this negative characteristic of “unfinished palace”. Open to the public since 1951, it has more than 300 works, to which is added a small collection of works from Africa, Oceania and other eastern countries. 

Peggy Guggenheim’s personal collection constitutes the bulk of the permanent collection. Here are masterpieces by some of the greatest artists of the twentieth century such as Picasso (The poet, On the beach), Braque (The clarinet), Duchamp (Sad young man on a train), Léger (Men in the city), Brâncuși (Bird in space), Severini (Sea dancer), Picabia (Very rare picture on earth), De Chirico (The red tower, The poet’s nostalgia), Mondrian (Composition n.1 with gray and red 1938 / Composition with red 1939), Kandinsky (Landscape with red spots no 2), Miró (Seated woman II), Giacometti (Woman with her throat cut, Walking woman), Klee (Magic garden), Ernst (The kiss, Attirement of the bride), Magritte (Empire of light), Dalí (Birth of liquid desires), Pollock (The moon woman, Eyes in the heat), Gorky (Untitled), Calder (Arch of petals) and Marini (The angel of the city).

In the garden inside the Museum, in the other open spaces of the museum and on the terrace on the Grand Canal, works from the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation are exhibited, as well as long-term loans from the Nasher Sculpture Center and other foundations, galleries and artists.
