Walt Kuhn's works from the first decade of the twentieth century, including "Albig’s", reflect the influence of Robert Henri and his followers. Albig’s was a restaurant located in Fort Lee, New Jersey, where Kuhn rented a house on the banks of the Hudson River. The community was convenient to Manhattan yet offered a respite from the city’s hectic pace. The figures in the painting have not been firmly identified, but they are most likely artist friends who occasionally joined Kuhn in Fort Lee. The woman is thought to be Mrs. Albig, the proprietor’s wife, and the man at the far left of the canvas, facing toward the viewer, may be Henri himself.
