Peggy Guggenheim & Nelly van Doesburg
Advocates of De Stijl
‘Peggy Guggenheim & Nelly van Doesburg’ tells the story of two strong and liberated art ambassadresses in a world dominated by men. It portrays their colourful private lives and focuses on their activities to promote modern art in general and ‘De Stijl’ in particular. The story of their efforts sheds a new light on ‘De Stijl’ and on the work of many artists and collectors and creates a comprehensive portrait of an era. In addition to work by Theo van Doesburg this volume includes work by Georges Vantongerloo, El Lissitzky, Constantin Brancusi, Antoine Pevsner, Fernand Léger and Piet Mondrian.
