Fidus (Faithful) (born Hugo Reinhold Karl Johann Höppener 1868 -1948) was a German painter, illustrator and important representative of the life reform. He devoted himself to life reformist ideas of vegetarianism, the light faith, of nudism and a nature-friendly lifestyle. The specific style of Art Nouveau of his paintings was henceforth with esoteric symbols – lotus flowers, egg shapes, crosses and sun sign – enriched.
