OLD HOUSE RESTORATION VIDEOS-Charles Rohlfs

Charles RohlfsLesser know than many of his contemporaries, & viewed as being too eccentric for the commercial market of his time Rohlf’s designs do not fit into any one category. His inspiration came from many sources, including Japan, China, the Middle East & Medieval & Renaissance Europe. He was visibly influenced by the Aesthetic style the Arts & Crafts Movement, Art Nouveau & is considered to be a proto-modernist, a style of the period approaching modernism which appeared at the beginning of the nineteenth century, and filtered through the century into Modernism.

Over the period of barely a decade, Rohlfs designed only a few hundred works—many of them for his own home. I have viewed his pieces at The Museum of Arts & Crafts in St. Petersburg, Florida & every time I visit I am enthralled by his genius.

He may be unfamiliar to you & I urge you to learn a great deal more about him by watching these videos.
