Influenced by his teachers Paul Cornoyer (1864-1923) and Frederick Oakes Sylvester (1869-1915), as well as the New York-based artist and teacher William Merritt Chase (1849-1916), Wolff developed his unique style of painting by combining the lightfilled leisure scenes of American Impressionism, the atmospheric effects of the Dutch Hague School, and the search for beauty in urban life of the early twentieth century.
