Howard Albert was a printmaker, musician, and composer. He attended the Art Institute of Chicago in the late 1930s. He also studied printmaking with Stanley William Hayter at Atelier 17 in New York. Hayter's studio was a workshop for other artists such as Picasso and Miró.
In the 1930-40s, Albert worked for a radio station in Chicago. Albert founded a printmaking organization called the Pauper's Press where he taught during the 1960s-70s. He was a master of engraving, etching, and woodblock printing. His subjects often included figures, abstraction, typography, and eroticism. In the 80's, he moved to Berkeley, California. Albert died in Berkley in 2004.
