Albert W. Scholle, 1860-1917

Nationality: American
Date of Birth: 1860


Albert W. Scholle (d. ca 1910) was a New York banker and collector of prints.


Scholle, of the bank Scholle Brothers, was a significant collector of old master and modern prints. Scholle's black ink pentagon stamp appears on a number of Whistler's etchings including K0220102, K0220204, K0460z12, K0550214, K0630z01, K0760104, K0760105, K0920z06, K1140502, K1400102, K1540108, K1540202, K1670505, K1770304, K2050z04, K4060306, K4070103 and K4080106. Many came from the Bernard Buchanan MacGeorge collection and some from the Royal Collection at Windsor. Whistler etchings from Scholle's collection were acquired by important collectors including Howard Mansfield, Harris G. Whittemore, Charles Cunningham and Lessing Julius Rosenwald, attesting to the collection's quality.
