The Montblanc Pen in honor of Peggy Guggenheim is the 25th in the annually renewed Patron of Art series, dedicated to the great patrons of the past. The first writing instrument named after Lorenzo Medici, the Patron of Art, appeared in 1992 - the same year Montblanc established its Montblanc de la Culture Arts Patronage award for patrons of the arts. The winner receives a cash prize and a pen from the limited edition Patron of Art collection. For a quarter of a century, pens have been issued in honor of Sir Henry Tate, Max von Oppenheim, the patron of the Pope Julius II.

This year's copy is dedicated to Peggy Guggenheim. The famous Venetian, niece of Solomon Guggenheim, who founded one of the finest museums of modern art in New York, was an avid art collector. Her collection formed the basis of the Venetian branch of the Guggenheim Museum on the Grand Canal, known as the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.

The body of the pen, made of gold and red lacquer, is decorated with a geometric pattern in the spirit of Art Deco, lion heads are engraved on the cap ring - an allusion to the Venier dei Leoni palazzo, where Peggy lived in Venice for almost 30 years, and the red and white stripes at the end of the case resemble striped mooring posts in the Venetian canals. The signature Montblanc star is crafted from white marble. The pen was released in the amount of 888 copies. There is also a simpler version of the Montblanc Patron of Art Peggy Guggenheim 4810 with black lacquer and platinum coating, limited to 4,810 pieces.>
