Sauter exhibited at the Royal Academy, Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, Pastel Society, in the provinces, at the Paris Salon and widely in the United States. He held one-man shows in London and New York. Many of his paintings were destroyed by a fire in the 1980s. Works by him are in the Imperial War Museum, National Portrait Gallery, Ferens Art Gallery, Hull and in other public collections.

The present work was painted during the Second World War when he was living at The Stocks, Wittersham, Tenterden, Kent. Always interested in flying and aviation he would have witnessed much of the action of the Battle of Britain from this house and this work, with the swirling flight pattern of the dove, may reflect his concerns and hopes for salvation and victory in the battle being fought above his head.
