"The Soest pictures from late 1905 and 1906/07, in which Rohlfs eventually attained his signature style, are the result of a number of experiments with means of expression. They are the crown of his creation since 1901. The Soest pictures are characterized by a coloring irrespective of the object. He does entirely without spatial depth and integrates the forms into the image's two-dimensionality while broad brushstrokes across the entire composition create texture."
Magdalena M. Moeller, in: Der Sonderbund, Cologne 1984, pp. 133f.
