Biography Robert Herbert
The following, submitted May 2004, is from Peter O. Herbert of Houston, Texas.
Robert G. Herbert (Sr.) was my grandfather. As a young boy, I spent a week every summer with Granny and Grampus in their Sea Cliff home on Long Island. I can still smell his shop and his studio ... as well as Granny's kitchen.
While it is quite abbreviated, I am pleased to share the following biographical sketch of the artist with you. For instance, even though his primary medium was oil, he also worked in water color, charcoal and pencil/pen-and-ink. His talents also extended to woodworking, pewter (with a display in the 1939 New York World's Fair) and snow sculpture.
