PEGGY GUGGENHEIM Alexandra Epps Monday 13 January 2020

 Peggy Guggenheim– the ‘poor little rich girl’ who changed the face of twentieth century art. Not only was Peggy Guggenheim ahead of her time but she was the woman who helped define it. She discovered and nurtured a new generation of artists producing a new kind of art. Through collecting not only art but the artists themselves,her life was as radical as her collection.  

Alexandra Epp’s background is in design, having practised as a graphic designer running her own design consultancy for many years. She now is the official Guide and Lecturer at Tate Modern, Tate Britain and Guildhall Art Gallery. She also offers guides to the City of London. Co-author of the book Lord Mayor’s Portraits 1983–2014 (2015)
