The Artistic Furniture of Charles Rohlfs
The Artistic Furniture of Charles Rohlfs at the Milwaukee Art Museum. "...Charles Rohlfs thought of himself as an American original. This charismatic furniture designer from Buffalo, New York, emphatically denied any connection to particular movements or stylistic influences. He claimed that his individual inspiration came from the natural grain of oak and his own creative imagination. He called his work 'Artistic Furniture' or, simply, 'The Rohlfs Style' and, in turn, cultivated an enigmatic persona that has persisted until now." Also... a Charles Rohlfs Mahogany Chair, ca. 1910 appraised on PBS' Antiques Roadshow in 2006.
