Albert Lorey Groll (1866–1952) was an American artist. He was born in New York and studied at the Royal Academy in Munich, Germany, the Royal Academy in Antwerp, Belgium, and for some time in London. In 1910, he was elected into the National Academy of Design, an elite organization.[1] He kept a studio in New York. In 1906 Groll made the first of several trips to the American Southwest at the suggestion of Professor Stewart Culin of the Brooklyn Museum.[2] He mostly focused on oil paintings of the Native American lands, which were mostly realistic, however, encompassed some abstract shapes as well. He won several awards for his work in both Arizona and New York.[3]
