This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Charles Umlauf's sculptures range in style from realistic and abstract expressionism to lyrical abstraction. His influences include Rodin, Henry Moore and Jacques Lipschitz.

He was born in South Haven Michigan in 1911 of German immigrant parents and studied at the Chicago School of Sculpture and the Chicago Art Institute. He worked at numerous jobs in Chicago including the Federal Art Project for which he did sculpture commissions for public buildings.

He moved to Austin Texas in 1941 with his family where he taught for 40 years in the Art Department of the University of Texas. From 1960 until 1991 he personally supervised the casting of his sculptures in various foundries in Italy. Charles Umlauf died in 1994.

His sculptures are to be found in churches, at numerous public sites, in museums including the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C, and the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art as well as in many private collections.

In 1985 he and his wife, Angeline Allen Umlauf, gave their home and studio with sculptures, drawings and paintings to the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum.
