'My designs are my own ... They are like those of no other period nor people.' Despite his kinship to the Arts and Crafts Movement, Charles Rohlfs (1853-1936) considered himself an American original. Published to accompany an exhibition at Milwaukee Art Museum, this handsome book features hundreds of colour images of his extraordinary furniture, alongside period photographs and advertisements. Groundbreaking research into the family archives reveals the origins of Rohlfs' ideas and the importance of his marriage to the novelist Anna Katharine Green.
