In Woman Before a Glass, Mercedes Ruehl is Peggy Guggenheim, the tempestuous lover of men and art, who spent her life supporting and loving the greatest artists of the Twentieth Century. Set from 1963 to 1968 in Peggy's home in Venice, the Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, the play follows the great triumphs and supreme disappointments of the legendary Grande Dame of the art world. She never bought a work of art for profit and never by chance, assembling a piece-by-piece collection that included major works by Klee, Pollack, Ernst, Miro, Chagall, DeKooning, Dali, Leger, Picasso, Duchamp, Braque, Rothko, Motherwell, Man Ray, among many others.
