Charles Rohlfs (1853-1936) ranked among the most innovative furniture makers at the turn of the 20th century. Praised by the international press and exhibited throughout the United States and Europe, the beautiful works from this Buffalo, New York, craftsman bear touches of arts and crafts, art nouveau, and early modernist styles, yet Rohlfs insisted he followed his own aesthetic directions. This heavily illustrated catalog is a major study of this important designer and craftsman, presenting detailed formal, structural, and stylistic analyses of masterpieces from museums and private collections, and features a set of unpublished period illustrations of more than 70 works.
"A remarkably vivid portrait of a unique talent flourishing at one of those extraordinarily adventurous periods of transition ... when there was a belief that design and art could transform society."
