Otto Kirberg studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy under Oswald Achenbach (1827-1905) and later at Wilhelm Sohn's (1829-1899) studio.
In 1879, he undertook a lengthy tour of the Netherlands where he developed a love of genre painting. And for the rest of his career, he enjoyed depicting scenes featuring regular working folk within simple interiors.
The National Gallery in Berlin houses one of his works.
