Biography from Miller Fine Art:
Artist and writer Weldon Kees in 1950 observed in the New York Times that next to New York, "San Francisco strikes at least this observer ... as the liveliest center of art activity in the country today."  Singling out Corbett, Smith, George Stillman, and Philip Roeber as the best of San Francisco's painter's, Kees asserted: "Work by any one of these men would set New York's avant-garde seismographs aquiver."

Which led Robert Motherwell to say" Philip Roeber is possibly the the best  collagist  in America."

- Susan Landauer, The San Francisco School of Abstract Expressionism, University of California Press
