Observations from Nature, Spring 1916
Catalogue published to coincide with an exhibition of works in pastel by Rudolf Sauter, all executed in 1916 whilst the artist was staying near Dartmoor with his uncle, the great novelist John Galsworthy. A supremely gifted draughstman in pastel, Sauter's work is rare, much of it having being destroyed by a fire in the later part of the twentieth century. Sauter's German descent prevented him from being eligible for active service in the First World War and he spent some of the later part of the War in internment in Alexandra Palace. Several drawings recording life there are now in the Imperial War Museum.
Josef Herman - From a Welsh Mine

The drawings were bought by a private collector from Herman himself in the 1990s and included a particularly fine selection of his early work ranging from drawings dating from his early life in Poland to depictions of miners executed soon after his move to Ystradgynlais in South Wales the mid 1940s.
