"Water lilies" by Otto Albert Friedrich Ignatius Küppers (1888 Bonn - 1986 ibid). He was a German landscape painter of the Düsseldorf School. He earned the reputation of an Eifel painter.

Küppers showed talent for drawing early on and studied painting at the Düsseldorf Art Academy from 1907 to 1912. There he was a student of the landscape painter Eugen Dücker. In the years 1913/1914 he then attended the Berlin Art Academy in Berlin-Charlottenburg for a year. After serving as a soldier in World War I, he worked as a restorer in his father´s sculpture workshop in Bonn. He soon set up a painter´s studio in the "guard house" of Poppelsdorf Castle and undertook study trips to Switzerland, Austria, Italy and the Netherlands. He liked to spend the winters in the Eifel.

Shortly after the First World War, Küppers became a member of the "Bonn Artists´ Association". Its first exhibition took place in 1919 in the Municipal Museum Villa Obernier in Bonn. Here he participated in its annual exhibitions. He achieved his artistic breakthrough in two special and solo exhibitions in the Villa Obernier entitled “The German Forest” and “Winter in the Mountains”.
