Swiss-born American painter whose artworks combine two different artistic styles: surrealism and naïve art. She was the daughter of the art collector Peggy Guggenheim and the writer Laurence Vail, and the granddaughter of Benjamin Guggenheim, who died on the RMS Titanic in 1912. Max Ernst became her stepfather.
In 1943, she met the French painter Jean Hélion, who helped introduce abstract art in the United States. Guggenheim married Hélion in New York in 1946. The couple moved to Paris the same year. They had three children together. When they divorced in 1956, Pegeen left Paris with her youngest son to live with her mother in Venice.
In 1957, Guggenheim met the English painter Ralph Rumney in London. Rumney was an English New Realist and one of the founders of the Situationist International. Guggenheim married Rumney in 1958 and gave birth to her fourth son the same year. In 1959, the couple moved to Paris.
Guggenheim died in Paris at age 41 on 1 March 1967, after overdosing on medication. She struggled all her life with depression.
