The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is the most important museum in Italy for 20th-century European and American art, created by the American heiress Peggy Guggenheim (1898-1979). With the advice of artists and critics, Peggy assembled the core of her collection in London, Paris, and New York between 1938 and 1947. It is located in Peggy Guggenheim's former home, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, on the Grand Canal in Venice. Inaugurated in 1980, the palazzo houses Peggy Guggenheim’s personal collection of 20th-century art, as well as masterpieces from the Hannelore B. and Rudolph B. Schulhof Collection, the Gianni Mattioli Collection, the Nasher Sculpture Garden, and various temporary exhibitions. The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is owned and operated by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, New York, which also operates the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and which is a partner of the Basque Regional Government for the programming of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.
