Description

Rudolf Bauer was a German-born painter, an early pioneer of the avant-garde at Der Sturm in Berlin, and whose innovative non-objective works become the property of Guggenheim after getting him from the Nazi’s in WW2. By the 1980’s the Guggenheim was selling Bauers work as ‘ unknown artist’ (they owned it all but did not show it) and the Portico NY bought it all as an undiscovered artist friend of Vasily Kandinsky, Klee etc and arranged retrospectives which went stunningly well. This is a rare poster from 1989 Rudolf Bauer: Centennial Exhibition, organized by Portico Gallery New York. In a contemporary frame with perspex front but one of the securing clips to the back missing. As at this time he was an unknown the chances of even a few posters surviving are slim. The Guggenheim prints are on 1st dibs at £1k+ which is ludicrous

Bio re Portico/Bauer:-The act of rediscovering Rudolf Bauer has been an ongoing project for over thirty-five years. Beginning with Guggenheim deaccessions to various galleries in the 1970s, the work that had not seen the light of day since the 1940s once again drew new enthusiasts. But a sellout show was a dead end until a new round of Guggenheim deaccessions brought fresh material to market. This start-and-stop cycle continued through the late 1980s, during which time a young curator named Steven Lowy had begun to research Bauer's life and work. Through his study, Lowy was able to track down the artist's estate in Europe, which has since enabled numerous exhibitions on the life and work of Rudolf Bauer. Indeed, the Guggenheim's decision to rid their collection of Bauer not only spurred the career of a conscientious curator, but also reawakened the spirit of an artist too significant to ignore. In 1997, the Guggenheim ceased all further sales of Bauer's work and it is unlikely that they will be renewed.
