Peggy Guggenheim

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

Muse of the month: Peggy Guggenheim, patron of the arts, trend setter, and avid collector of paintings, sculpture, jewelry and men. Her penchant for hanging jewelry on the wall inspired our decorator, Darrell P. to make a Peggy G. wall with some of our more sculptural pieces. Peggy’s jewelry was designed by artists like Alexander Calder and Juan Miro. We hung Victorian era Iroquois bead work, a Chinese embroidered necklace, and a group of beaded handbags dating from 1920′s – 1950′s.
