Excerpt from Robert Marshall Root Centennial Art Exhibit: June 16, 1963, Chautauqua Auditorium, Shelbyville, Illinois
So when he was eleven years old Robert Root moved back to town with things as he knew them dimly confused with the crystal tears, and tasteful elegance of things as the then popular novels pictured them out. But deep within him was the consciousness that drawing trees full of jay birds was one of the most satisfying things he had ever done. Then when he was about twelve years old, he discovered art, and with that discovery his career began. The event took place when the boy one day saw a man making pencil drawings of a prom inent house in Shelbyville. He watched the artist for a time, and then got himself a board, some pencils and paper and started to draw with him. The artist, if he may be so called, was L. A. Birk, and all who possess a copy of the 1880 edition of the History of Shelby and Moultrie Counties, may view therein his pictures of farm homes and city dwellings, stiff with precision and rigid as cast iron ornaments.
