    Max Kuehne (American, 1880-1968)

    A silvered lacquer low table by American Impressionist painter and furniture maker, Max Kuehne, is incised and painted with naturalistic flowers and foliage. Originally from Germany, Kuehne immigrated to the United States with his family in 1890s. He studied at the New York School of Art under William Merritt Chase and Kenneth Hayes Miller in 1907, and later at the National Academy of Design.

    Although best known for his Impressionist paintings of Cape Ann, Massachusetts, Kuehne was also a prolific wood carver- making furniture, screens and picture frames and turned to creating more of these marketable pieces during the height of the Depression.
