Artwork Biography

View full artist profile

Otto Pippel was one of the most important Impressionists in Southern Germany. As the son of German parents who had emigrated to Lodz, Pippel enrolled at the School of Applied Arts in Straßburg in 1896 with the express wish to become an interior decorator and a decorative painter. He had to interrupt his studies shortly afterwards, however, as he was drafted into the Russian army for four years. He continued his studies in 1905 in Karlsruhe under Friedrich Fehr and Julius Hugo Bergmann and in 1907 at the Dresden Akademie under Gotthard Kuehl. Pippel travelled to the Crimea in the following year and decided to settle in Planegg near Munich in 1909. In the same year, he travelled to Paris, where the French Impressionists encouraged him to develop images of light and impressions. Pippel joined the 'Luitpoldgruppe' in 1912 and exhibited his first work, a small winter landscape, at the Munich Glaspalast. He had regular exhibitions at the Galerie Brakl in Munich since 1915. At the outbreak of the First World War he was drafted, but was able to spend the war as an interpreter in a prisoner-of-war camp near Lechfeld because of his command of Polish and Russian. After the war, Pippel returned to his house in Planegg, where he spent the rest of his life, creating an extensive oeuvre. As a master of colour Pippel painted wonderful landscapes, still-lifes and vedutas, but he also mastered figure painting in a perfect Impressionist style. Among his best known works are, above all, the Munich motifs, such as the Hofgarten, the Englischer Garten and the Hirschgarten. Otto Pippels works can today be seen in the Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus ('Das Undosabad in Starnberg' and 'Großstadtstraße') as well as in the Städtische Galerie Rosenheim ('Am chinesischen Turm', 'Sommer' and 'Kammermusik')
