Abstract

Peggy Guggenheim (1898-1979), born into the wealthy New York German-Jewish circle portrayed in Stephen Birmingham's Our Crowd, set up permanent residency for herself and her extensive modern art collection in Venice in 1947. Her biography and her representations, by herself and others (some of them anti-Semitic), offer clues about her identity as a Jewish woman and shed light on the shifting identities of modern, secular Jews in the twentieth century.
