Basilica of San Vitale - Ravenna (Italy)

The Church of San Vitale, the masterpiece of Byzantine art in Ravenna. Construction began in 526 by Bishop Ecclesius under the Ostrogothic queen Amalasuntha (d. 535) and was consecrated in 547 during the reign of the emperor Justinian. This octagonal church, built of marble and capped by a lofty terra-cotta dome, is one of the most important surviving examples of Byzantine architecture and mosaic work.

Mistress of Modernism |Marguerite ”Peggy” Guggenheim (1898-1979)| American Art Collector, Bohemian & Socialite

After her father Benjamin Guggenheim went down with the Titanic in 1912, his eccentric daughter, Peggy, inherited $2.5 million (that’s $34 million today) which provided her an income of $22,500 a year in the form of a trust fund. In some circles, it was estimated she only inherited $450,000. Bored with New York, she moved to Europe to satisfy her voracious artistic and sexual appetites (Rumor has it she slept with 1,000 men!). She is well known for assembling a very notable modern art collection between 1938-46 from the likes of Duchamp, Pollock, Rothko, Calder, Kandinsky, Picasso, Miró, and many other prominent artists of the time.
