WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

World-renowned artist Rudolf Bauer was so driven to create, he sketched on scraps in a Nazi prison. Yet he eventually stopped painting forever when a feud erupted amongst himself, his patron and benefactor Solomon Guggenheim, and Bauer's lifetime love, Baroness Hilla Rebay – one of Guggenheim's most trusted curators. The Guggenheim Museum, originally built to house Bauer's works, opened without a single Bauer exhibited.

Commissioned by San Francisco Playhouse, Bauer is a compelling and controversial imagined face-off between Bauer and the two women he loved most as they each confront the passions of his life and art.

Rudolf Bauer is considered by many art historians and critics to have had a major impact on modern artists such as Jackson Pollock and William de Kooning, and yet his name and work mysteriously disappeared from the art world in the 1950s and many of his paintings remain banished to the basement of the Guggenheim Museum.
