Albert Unseld

1879 Ulm — 1964 Ulm

The architect and painter Albert Unseld was born in Ulm, one of fifteen children. After taking his final exams in 1898, he began studying architecture at the Technical University of Stuttgart. This was at the insistence of his father, who wanted his son to enter a stable profession. During his studies, Unseld also took painting lessons from Adolf Treidler and Gustav Halmhuber. In 1902, Unseld began working in the private studio of the architect Paul Wallot in Dresden, and in 1903 he became Wallot’s assistant at the Dresden School of Applied Arts. During this time, Unseld also took painting lessons. In 1907, he was appointed a government architect and the head of the Building Academy in Biberach an der Riss. Unseld was also active as a freelance architect in Ulm from 1908 onwards, and became more and more established as an artist as well. In 1929, he became a member of the association Die Juryfreien in Munich; one year later, he joined the Association of German Artists. He thereafter enjoyed numerous new opportunities to exhibit his art, including the exhibition of the Association of German Artists entitled “Painting and Sculpture in Germany in 1936” in the Kunstverein in Hamburg, though it was closed by the Nazis after just a few days.
