Alfred S. Roorbach: A Skilled Artist in Watercolor From New Jersey

Joseph W. Hammond

Abstract


The two watercolors discussed in this essay that depict scenes along the Monmouth Bayshore are signed “A S Roorbach.” A private collector purchased them from a local antique shop in the mid-1980s, even though the identity of the artist was not known at the time. The watercolors were subsequently acquired in the summer of 2019 by the Monmouth County Park System. Searchable databases available today on the internet have finally provided information about the life and career of this talented artist.
