Karl Albert Biography

Born in Halstead, KS, Karl Albert grew up in Wyoming and began painting about 1930 while working as a postmaster in Oro Grande, a small town in the Mojave desert. Karl Albert first studied with EDGAR PAYNE & SAM HYDE HARRIS followed by study at the Art Center School in Los Angeles.
Prior to 1960 Karl Albert painted Impressionist canvases in plein air (on location), but after that time he confined his painting to his studio producing works in a much tighter style. Karl Albert's subjects include desert landscapes, California coastal oils and scenes of the foothil near Pasadena.
