Peggy Guggenheim was an American socialite and supporter of the arts. She had many avant-garde writer and artists friends, that included but not limited to Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp, Henry Moore and Max Ernst. She was known for her turbulent love life and extravegent life-style but the woman sure did have an eye for art and design. Artist, Alexander Calder was also a close friend. Below, is a silver headboard she commissioned from him in 1946.
