Betrayal: The Life and Art of Rudolf Bauer Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Sun, Mar 23, 2014 -- 3:00 PM

From the height of achievement to the depths of obscurity, from a Gestapo prison to the Guggenheim Museum, the story of 20th-century abstract artist Rudolf Bauer is one of Shakespearean proportion. Yet Bauer's name and art have been largely forgotten. This documentary revisits the life and art of this important painter, from his artistic beginnings in Berlin before World War I to his pioneering contributions to non-objective art and his patronage by copper magnate Solomon R. Guggenheim.
Intertwined with Bauer's artistic life was his tumulttuous relationship with Hilla Rebay, Guggenheim's personal curator and Bauer's former lover. Through this connection, Bauer played a crucial role in the establishment of Guggenheim's collection and a museum to house it. Ultimately, a dramatic falling out with Rebay and Guggenheim would take its toll on the artist, his art, and his legacy. 60 years later, the art of Rudolf Bauer is rediscovered.
