The Guggenheims, A Dynasty of Art Collectors

in Fuengirola Municipality in Málaga Province, Andalucia, Spain

Monday 11 May 2020

The Palomino Properties Lecture

The Guggenheim name had become synonymous with some of the most inspiring art and museums in the world. With the landmark Solomon R. Guggenheim museum on Fifth Avenue and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection on the Grand Canal in Venice, the family foundation did not stop there. They commissioned the celebrated building by Frank Gehry in Bilbao which is now considered a masterpiece of modern architecture and design. Other expansion plans have not fared so well having been abandoned after residents were not persuaded they needed a Guggenheim in their city. This lecture looks at the beginning of both Solomon’s and Peggy’s collections in New York City and traces the development and expansion of their collections over more than half a century.

Lecturer: Andrew Hopkins

The lectures start at 16:30 and are held at the Salón Varietés, Fuengirola.

MEMBERS: Free; NON-MEMBERS: 10€ per lecture, to be paid at the visitors’ desk prior to the lecture.

Visitors from other Member Societies of the Arts Society: 8€ on presentation of membership card.
