A favorite artist of Solomon R. Guggenheim, Bauer was a prominent early figure of the non-objective art movement at the beginning of the 20th century. "Larghetto III" is among a series of early works with musically inspired titles. Guggenheim so admired the artist that he purchased more than 300 of Bauer's works, forming the foundation of his collection.

<br>The opening of Guggenheim's Museum of Non-Objective Painting in 1939 featured work by Rudolf Bauer and Wassily Kandinsky. Classical music played in the exhibition space.

<br>German-born Bauer worked closely with the legendary "Der Sturm" gallery in Berlin. He was also imprisoned by the Gestapo for some time because of his subversive art. He emigrated to the United States upon his release in 1939.

Henry Moore, a father of Modern British sculpture, is known for his large-scale, semi-abstract figurative sculptures in bronze, wood, and marble. This 1960 bronze sculpture of two seated figures demonstrates Moore’s gestural treatment of material. The focus on a family group is reflective of the artist’s move toward a sense of optimism after World War II. Small sculptures like this one are rare, and in subject mater and composition are reminiscent of his earlier seated figures based upon ancient Egyptian royal sculpture.
