Peggy Guggenheim is remembered as a generous supporter of the arts, and this is a sound judgment. She slept with some of the artists, like Yves Tanguy (January 5, 1900 to January 15, 1955), the French surrealist painter. Tanguy had been a secretive child, though when he was 14 years old, he was expelled from Lycee Montaigne for possessing ether. He embraced the intra war bohemian lifestyle. Of course he was impoverished, so when Guggenheim arranged a show for him at her London gallery (July 6, 1938), and he sold some canvases, it is lovely to recall his generosity. A fellow artist, Victor Brauner, was too proud to take money, but Tanguy sent him 1 pound a week to care for the Tanguys' Manx cat, left in Paris as they traveled to England for the exhibition.
