Peggy Guggenheim was an American gallerist and entrepreneur, as well as a tastemaker of culture who significantly shaped modern art. Lizzie Dennis first encountered Peggy while backpacking around Europe in her early 20s. Visiting Peggy's former home on the Grand Canal in Venice she was immediately drawn into Peggy’s world. Drawing on her interest in interiors, Dennis decided to create a piece inspired by Peggy and the art that she loved and lived with.
