As somebody with a neutral view on modern art, it would be my view that this isn't the most essential collection of it, though many notables are represented. When you factor in the amazing view of the Grand Canal from the terrace, and aesthetic sculpture...More

Peggy amassed quite a collection and her policy of supporting living painters (most are now dead though!) certainly paid off. Well work a visit when sightseeing in Venice. There are some beautiful artworks to see.

The Guggenheim museum is rather small but still an oasis in the hustle en bustle of this tourist city. And let's not forget the excellent paintings and sculptures from modern artists from all over the world! A must see!!!!

So many paintings. I can only imaging what parties at her house must have been like... I would have been afraid that I would spill my drink on the Picasso.

Hi Cary The Museum was a home so it's not very large and probably could be done in around an hour. That said, if you want to spend a bit of time looking at the works more closely you shoud allow longer. My wife is very into... More
