This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Halstead, KS on Sept. 12, 1911.  Albert grew up in Wyoming and moved to southern California with his family in 1923.  He began painting about 1930 while working as a postmaster in Oro Grande, a small town in the Mojave desert.  In 1933 he met Edgar Payne and studied with him for two years while on painting forays into the High Sierra and the desert around Palm Springs.   He then studied with Sam Hyde Harris at the Businessmen's Art Institute in Los Angeles.  During WWII he began work as an engineer making products vital to the war effort while studying at the Art Center School in Pasadena.  After a year in Cuernavaca, Mexico in the mid-1940s, he returned to Los Angeles.  Retiring from engineering in 1967, he began painting full-time at his home in Arcadia, CA.  Before 1960 he painted impressionist canvases en plein air, but then confined his painting to his studio, producing works in a much tighter style.  He currently lives with his daughter in Italy.

Born in Hallstead, Kansas, Karl Albert became known for his paintings of the High Sierras and desert landscapes. He grew up in Southern California, and began painting about 1930 while working as the postmaster of Oro Grande, a small town in the Mohave Desert.

He first studied with Edgar Payne and Sam Hyde Harris and then attended the Los Angeles Art Center. He spent a year in Mexico and then in the late 1940s, moved to Southern California, becoming an active artist in Long Beach and later in Alhambra.
