(b Werden, Essen, 28 May 1835; d Cologne, 9 Aug 1913). German
sculptor and teacher. He trained (1851–4) as a wood-carver in
Elberfeld, and from 1855 he studied at the Akademie der Künste,
Berlin, also working in the studios of August Fischer (1805–66) and
Hugo Hagen (?1818–1871). In 1865 Albermann moved to Cologne and
established his own workshop. From 1871 to 1896 he taught the
modelling class at the Gewerbliche Zeichenschule, and from the 1890s
onwards he was active in the Verein zur Förderung der Bildhauerkunst
in Rheinland und Westfalen, which was established in reaction to
Berlin’s dominance in commissions for monumental sculpture.
