Herbert Albrecht was born in Vorarlberg in 1921. From 1941 onwards he attended a sculpture class in Innsbruck. His art education was interrupted by Worl War II. He graduated the sculpture class of Franz Santifellner, the live drawing of Herbert Boeckl at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna in 1949 and the academy of Fritz Wotruba where he studied from 1951 to 1955. After his graduation Albrecht returned to Vorarlberg. During this time he made his first exhibitions. In 1987 he won the international art price of Vorarlberg. A lot of his sculptures are on public demand. Among others, he used mostly stone, bronze and wood as materials for his artwork. The sculptures depicture human bodies. A very prominent feature of his art is the treatment of the surface. Herbert Albrecht is one of the most important pioneers of modern sculptures in postwar Austria.
