Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice

Rather than do the traditional sightseeing in Venice, I made a beeline for the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and how happy I am with that decision.

Here are some of my favourite pieces:

Max Ernst

Picasso – On the Beach

Giacometti -Piazza and Woman Walking

Miro

 

 

Coming soon…Joan Miro

Excited to have bought a ticket for Fundacio Joan Miro.

My only experience is Dog Barking at Moon, a print of which was in our dining room for years.

 What’s not to love about this painting? Dog, ladders and the moon…no, I don’t know what it means, no, it doesn’t make any sense, but if there was no ladder there, I would be wondering why not!
Pity this one is in Pittsburgh and not Barcelona, but am looking forward to learning more about Miro’s work.  More later on this one!
