Rudolf Helmet Sauter
Rudolf Sauter was born in 1895. He was educated at Harrow School, and later studied art in London and Munich. Sauter exhibited extensively and internationally.
This included shows 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, Rudolf was interned in a converted Alexandra Palace and in Frith Hill Camp, Surrey.
Letters written to his wife while interned are held today in the collection of the Imperial War Museum. 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, visiting the wives and children of soldiers.
