Just around the corner from the Galleria dell'Accademia, on the Grand Canal is one of Venice's premier museums. Peggy Guggenheim, a wealthy American, was interested in contemporary art and came into contact with various artists who guided and educated her, including Alexander Calder and Marcel Duchamp. This museum houses a collection of contemporary art, including works by Bacon, Balla, Brancusi, and Chagall. You'll also find masterpieces of De Chirico, Kandinsky, Klee, and El Lissitskj, Magritte, Man Ray, Picasso, and Pollock. Images of Guggenheim's gallery in New York are also on display here.
