    Holy One by Rudolf Bauer (Guggenheim, 1939). Framed Guggenheim Art Print (26.5" X 26.5") Unframed (24" X 24"), and Guggenheim Catalog (1939).
    A good friend to copper mogul Solomon R. Guggenheim, German painter Rudolf Bauer created several avant-garde, abstractionist works that would become a major component of Guggenheim's collection of non-objective art. Although Bauer's art was influential in and of itself, this particular piece from 1936 is credited as the main inspiration for the iconic Trylon and Perisphere of the 1939 World's Fair, designed by architects Wallace Harrison and J. Andre Fouilhoux. Hailing from Guggenheim's 1939 exhibit on non-objective art, this colorful print is accompanied by an original catalogue detailing the numerous pieces featured in the show, most of which are Bauer's. A rare find, this print shows surface rippling and has some smudges in the borders. The catalog has corner bends and smudging with stains on the covers. Both of the covers have reattached with paper tape along the interior spine, and there is paper loss and writing on the exterior spine. Very Fine.

    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
