About the Play

Why did he stop? Imprisoned by the Nazis, he sketched on scraps. His fiery love affair with Hilla Rebay (Guggenheim curator) lasted a lifetime. The Guggenheim was built to house his work. Why did the genius that survived all that suddenly stop painting?

In his time, Rudolf Bauer was considered by Solomon Guggeinheim to be an even greater painter than his contemporary, Kandinsky. This production explores the power struggle and intrigue that caused this brilliant artist to disappear from the art world. Bauer has been in development at the San Francisco Playhouse since 2011, and will be our first World Premiere Commission on the main stage!

This is a San Francisco Playhouse commissioned work.
