Imbued with complex anti-war and religious imagery, Rudolf Sauter’s NEVER MORE…! (a modern Triptych) (oil on panels) was displayed in London’s Arlington Gallery, 3-13 March 1936. It was located in the section of the exhibition entitled “Mad New World,” its center panel entitled “The Reaping,” left panel “The Sowing,” and right panel entitled “The Harvest.” As the Second World War approached, Sauter achieved several more exhibitions as part of burgeoning career. However, none would be as timely and significant as the one in the Arlington Gallery, and none reflected so vividly the fatalism of this public triptych.
