German artist, a painter named by the Nazi regime as a degenerate artist from the 1930s, who thence had to stop working until after the war.

Gilles found his artistic calling while at the academies of Kassel and Weimar, studying under Lyonel Feininger of the Bauhaus school. He later moved after 1921 to Ischia, Italy. He moved to Düsseldorf in 1923, but between 1925 and 1930 he also worked in Berlin and Paris and lived in both during the period.

From 1951 he moved to München in the winter, and Ischia in the summer. He died in Essen on 23 June 1961.
