Painter Henry Sanders (Helmuth Saloman) was born into a Jewish family in Dresden, Germany in 1918. Following Hitler's accession to the German Chancellorship in 1933, Sanders left for Holland and then England, where he studied at Hornsey College of Art from 1935–39. During the Second World War, Sanders was interned as an ‘enemy alien’ in a commonweath camp in Canada, where he drew prodigiously. Afterwards, he returned to England, and to Hornsey, studying under Russell Reave and John Moody. He went on to exhibit regularly at galleries in London including the Ben Uri Gallery, the Obelisk Gallery, the Redfern Gallery, and Roland Browse & Delbanco, as well as with the artists exhibiting society, The London Group, and in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. In 1949–51 he served in the Studio Group Committee at the Ben Uri Art Society. As well as a painter of landscapes, figures and animals, he was also a lithographer and lino-cutter. Henry Sanders died in London, England in 1982. A joint memorial exhibition with Jack Bilbo and Lottie Reizenstein was held at Ben Uri Gallery the following year.
