"Julius Diez (born 18 September 1870 in Nuremberg, died May 15, 1957 in Munich) was a German painter, graphic artist, draftsman and etcher. He was a versatile artist and worked with bright and decorative effects. His work includes works of art, medals, plaques and ex-libris.

Diez was the son of a merchant and the nephew of the painter Wilhelm von Diez. He studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Munich and the Kunstakademie in Munich with Gabriel von Hackl and Rudolf von Seitz. At both institutes, he later taught himself as a professor.

Already at a young age, Diez was one of the chief illustrators of the magazine Die Jugend, but also worked for the magazine Simplicissimus. For the publishing house Schafstein & Co. (later Schaffstein) he illustrated the picture book Miaulina (1902) and produced pictures of Knecht Ruprecht, Hänschen to the Santa Claus and the faithful Eckart. In 1904, Julius Diez took part in the first exhibition of the German Artists' Union at the Königliche Kunstausstellungsgebäude am Königsplatz in Munich with "Im Irrgarten" (pastel), "Der Kuppler" (watercolor), "Uninvited Guest" (color pencil drawing) " In the following year, he won one of two second prizes in the price list for advertisements for the joint promotion of the chocolate factory Gebr. Stollwerck AG and the champagne cellar Henkell & Co .."
