Carl Arriens (* 12. March 1869 in Heide (Holstein) ; ca. 1930 † [1] ) was a German painter and illustrator.

Around 1900, Carl Arriens worked for the Sunlicht publishing house, which then published a series of novels in Art Nouveau book covers. In 1909 Arriens lived in Berlin. He was then admitted to the Berlin Anthropological Society as a painter and illustrator. [2] Another such message, this time with the address details Berlin-Friedenau, is found in the Journal of Anthropology 47, No. 1 of 1915. [3]

Arriens participated in the German Inner Africa Research Expeditions No. IV and VI by Leo Frobenius . [4] [5] This took place from 1910 to 1912 and from 1912 to 1914. [6] In addition to the drawings, which he made on these expeditions, he also created illustrations for novels and templates for school murals. [7] He apparently signed with C. Arriens.

Apparently, he later also worked as a travel writer; In 1924, for instance, mosaics of peoples' life came out , in 1927 under Kabyles and Bedouins, and in 1928 at the hearth-fire of the Blacks .

Already since 1907 Arriens was a member of the Berlin Masonic Lodge Zum Pegasus .
