This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Otto Dill (b. 1884 / d. 1957)

Otto Dill was born on June 4, 1884 in Neustade, Germany.

Dill first had an apprenticeship as a bookseller and publisher, before he studied painting.  He attended Munich Academy from 1908 to 1914. He was a master student of the famous animal painter Henry of reins.

In 1914 to 1916, Dill volunteered in the Bavarian War Ministry.  Two years before the war ended, he married Emmy Dorothea Dill Scheidt.  Working as a freelance artist, in 1917 he was represented with a first exhibition in Munich Glass Palace.  Dill became a member of the Munich Secession in 1922.  With other artists of the association, he was part of various exhibitions.

Dill was awarded the title of professor in 1924.  Through his travels to North Africa, Italy, France and Spain, Dill gain many inspirations for his numerous paintings and drawings.  Due to his hundreds of his representations of lions he earned the nickname “Lion-Dill”.

Dill returned to Neustadt from Munich in 1930, where he painted mostly landscapes.  In 1941, during World War II  he moved to Bad Durkheim.  A large collection of his works were destroyed in the bomb attack in Ludwigshafen in 1943.  During this difficult time, Dill often created drawings for food.  

The town of Bad Durkheim made Dill an honorary citizen in 1949.  That year he was also made an honorary member of the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and an honorary member of the Society of the Heinrich-von-rein-friends in Woerth.  In his home town of Neustadt on the Wine Route, a museum which is solely dedicated to his work was opened in 2001.

From 1941 until his death in 1957, Dill lived and worked in Bad Durkheim.
