Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

This definitive portrait of one of America's wealthiest, most influential dynasties traces their dynamic and often tragic lives. 'The Guggenheims': Meyer Guggenheim, the penniless immigrant whose genius for business and penchant for taking risks made the family fortune; Solomon Guggenheim, the pioneer art patron who commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to build the revolutionary piece of modern architecture, The Guggenheim Museum, opening the doors of contemporary art to America; Peggy Guggenheim, self-styled 'first liberated woman' who built a Venetian palace for her art but lost both her daughter and her lover to suicide; Daniel and Harry Guggenheim, whose financial interest in rocket science supported the Apollo moon landing and the growth of America's modern space program; Roger W. Straus Jr., grandson of Daniel Guggenheim, who became America's foremost literary publisher, bringing numerous Nobel Prize Winning authors to the world's bookshelves. Updated with the latest from the heirs to the Guggenheim dynasty and illustrated throughout with rare family photos, John Davis has chronicled the saga of one of America's first families of philanthropy.
