Biography Albert Schmidt
Born in Chicago, Illinois, Albert Herman Schmidt was a founding member of the Santa Fe, New Mexico Art Colony. Although he painted portraits, he was primarily known for his landscapes inspired by his awe of the expanse of Northern New Mexico.
He was a pupil of Charles Francis Browne at the Art Institute of Chicago and then studied at the Julian Academy in Paris, the pupil of Henri Martin. He settled permanently in Santa Fe in 1921 and applied his academic training to Southwestern subjects. Many of his Indian portraits were done in formal, traditional style.
He was very quiet and unassuming and did not actively seek exhibitions for himself, preferring to paint for personal pleasure.
