The Peggy Guggenheim had a prolific impact on me.  The museum has works from artists such as Andy Warhol, Wassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian, Jackson Pollock and Picasso to name a few.  Seeing so many big names from the Cubist, Surrealist, and Abstract Expressionist movement is very inspiring.

One of the main things that I paid attention to while at the Guggenheim, because we could get so close to the art, were the pencil and brush marks in the artwork.  The main one that really got me excited, was Picasso's Lacerba.  While it is a mixed media piece, being able to be so close to the art I was able to see every pencil mark he made on the paper.  Seeing artwork up close like that, especially artwork of someone so well known, brings the artwork off of the pedestal, and makes the work more relate-able as an artist.
