SAUTER, Rudolf Helmut

Sauter (1895-1977) was educated at Harrow School and later studied art in London and Munich. Sauter exhibited internationally in Paris, New York, and South Africa. Following the declaration of war with Germany, the British government passed the Aliens Restriction Act. In December 1915, his father was interned, and ultimately deported to Germany. Rudolf was interned in a converted Alexandra Palace. Following the war, Sauter became a naturalized British citizen, something he referred to as “purely formal”, having lived in England since he was a year old. During World War II acted as an Army Welfare officer. Rudolf Sauter was close to his uncle John Galsworthy, about whom he wrote a memoir: Galsworthy the Man.
