This pastel may be dated to the spring of 1916, when the young Rudolf Sauter visited his uncle, the novelist John Galsworthy, who had a home near Dartmoor. The present sheet is one of a small group of pastel landscapes loosely placed in a folio – inscribed with a handwritten label which read ‘Designs, studies and ideas for pictures’ – found among the artist’s effects long after his death.
