Albert Groll was born and raised in New York City, but spent several years in Europe studying art. He was taught by Ludwig Loefftz at the Royal Academy in Munich, Germany. He then attended the Royal Academy in Antwerp, Belgium and on to London, England. When he returned to New York City in 1895, he gave up figure painting because it was too costly to hire models.

Throughout his career, Groll consistently won favor at competitions and exhibitions. His awards include the Salmagundi Club’s Shaw Prize in 1903 and 1904, a silver medal at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition of 1904 in St. Louis, the George Inness gold medal from the National Academy in 1912, and a silver medal at the San Francisco Panama-Pacific International Exposition of 1915. He was inducted into the National Academy of Design in 1910.

His work is in museum collections at The Fine Art Museum of San Francisco, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Richmond Art Museum, and the Smithsonian Institution among others. He died in New York City in 1952 at age 86.
