Albert Birkle was born in 1900 in Berlin-Charlottenburg. He studied at the Berlin Academy and was accepted as the youngest member of the "Berlin Secession". During his years of studies Alber Birkle formed a religious-social-critical realism with newly objective aspects of who accepts caricature, particularly in his very individual faces. Birkle moved to Salzburg in 1932.
In his work socio critical tendencies lose themselves and his Landscapes and industrial motifs became more atmospheric and more monumental. In 1946 Birkle received the Austrian citizenship and the title of professor. The artist engaged in expressive paintings and drawings of the late work, calling himself a "chronicler of the time," regarding earlier designs of the 1920s and 1940s and their socially critical tendencies.. Albert Birkle died January 29, 1986 in Salzburg.
