A new documentary out this month offers an intimate look at Peggy Guggenheim, known as much for the number of men she slept with as her lasting mark on 20th-century art."Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict" delves into the idiosyncratic collector's life, using previously unheard recorded interviews that were her last before dying in 1979 at age 81 . Filmmaker Lisa Immordino Vreeland, who interviewed some 60 people for the film, spoke with AFP Tuesday about the project, which was three years in the making.She said she decided to do a film on Guggenheim to offer a full and honest portrait of a complex woman largely known for her sexual exploits and less for her lasting mark on the art world. The film also delves into Guggenheim's troubled and tragic family life.Vreeland said she hoped her film would change Guggenheim's legacy and ensure she is remembered for her indelible mark on the history of art.
