Otto Greiner was a German painter and graphic artist. He was born in Leipzig and began his career there as a lithographer and engraver. He relocated to Munich around 1888 and studied there under Alexander Liezen-Mayer. Greiner’s mature style – characterized by unexpected spatial juxtapositions and a sharply focused, photographic naturalism – was strongly influenced by the work of Max Klinger whom he met in 1891 while visiting Rome. Greiner died in Munich in 1916. The largest collection of his work in the United States is held by the Jack Daulton Collection in Los Altos Hills, California.

Greiner’s work has been offered at auction multiple times, the record price being 32,245 USD for Venus sold at Karl & Faber in 2007.
