His father Georg was a church painter who introduced him to painting, and in 1884, Albin entered the Munich Academy of Fine Art until 1893. Jean-Fran├žois Millet and Franz von Defregger influenced his paintings. He worked in Munich and Vienna where he joined the Secession group of artists in 1909 and came under the influence of the Swiss symbolist painter Ferdinand Hodler. Albin served as a war artist for a short time in 1915 but left due to ill health. His works were well received in Italy, and the Vienna Academy of Art invited him to teach for the second time running, but he refused the offer once again. His last years were in Bolzano Northern Italy where he died in 1926.
