Born in Berlin, Erich Kips studied at the Karlsruhe Academy and then under Eugène Girardet in Paris. In 1893 he designed showrooms at the Chicago World’s Fair. He exhibited at the Glaspalast in Munich in 1899 and the Great Berlin Art Exhibition in 1901. He continued to exhibit regularly in Berlin, where he executed wall-paintings in the city’s House of Representatives. In 1915 he won a bronze medal at the Panama Pacific Exhibition in San Francisco.
In 1928 Kips undertook a voyage on the SS Resolute, and painted a number of Far Eastern subjects in a free and vigorous manner.
