Hi guys,

I can only say that's a pity that no one was interested in buying Adolf's art.
A bit of money during his Vienna time would turn him into different direction...

Perhaps, but I have to admit his art is pretty shitty.

Here is a gallery of Hitler's art: http://www.hitler.org/art/

I wouldn't call his work shitty. His scenery paintings are really good. But I can't say the same for his drawings of people.

I guess we could say it's okay...however it's wasn't something uncanny or extrodinery, probably any average painter could paint them.

I think its far from "shitty". I'd like one for my wall, it would certainly make an interesting talking point when somebody asks who the artist was!

Yeah I'll give you that. His work is not amazing, but maybe if he got some of it sold and some encouragement he might have continued with his painting. Then maybe the world would be in a very different place.

The first sketch of a Volkswagon, by Hitler who had a big hand in the looks of the car.

I think you give him too much credit, WWII was doomed to happend, if Hitler didn't grab the power in 1933 eventually the Junkers/Army would take control, the war would still be happening althought it's would probably would be more modert, no atrocities of the German army and probably the anti-semitics laws would never turn to genocide (if there would be any).

Hi folks,

Adi twice failed exams to Fine Art Academy in Vienna.
Do you know what happened to these art professors/examiners after Anschluss?
Did he took his revenge? And if yes, how?

Anyway, IMHO, Adolf as a self taught "painter" was somewhat proficient.
He admitted that he sold about 3000 "paintings".
Kitsch is kitsch - if there is a market for kitsch, kitsch producers are sometimes smarter than great artists which can't sell anything.
I believe that smart arses which decided that Adolf cannot be "professional" were really regretting their decision in 1938.
World would look quite different...

And what a difference between Van Gogh and Adolf Hitler?
In both cases their art is selling well and fetching exorbitant prices after their death.

But for diffrent reasons, van Gogh art sell well because of the art itself, while Hitler art sell because who painted it and not because of the quality of the art.

That's right Dear Ingsoc, but to the point... you cannot compare art with kitsch, however I insist that both sell because "who painted it". lol

I agree his portraits and life drawing leave much to de desired but I am actually quite fond of his landscapes and architectural work. I wouldn't mind having some prints either and not because of who painted them. I think he had some real talent. It just needed some fine tuning.

Searching for my post about Dresden something like that jumped on my screen. I could not help myself to add it to Hitler's painting...

At first I thought that this is Goebels propaganda. In reality this dude lives well is kicking and painting... And probably selling his works!

Maybe some one should start a propaganda art thread? That is some great art, I could make an outrageous T-shirt by putting some of that art on it!

Don't be sorry! Threads can be re-started anytime. This is the whole idea od this Forum. We want to attract knowledgeable people and be a source of knowledge for anyone!

Hitler just outlined what "he wanted" in his sketch. Ferdinand Porsche realised what Hitler wanted - and Beetle was born...

There's no museum of Hitler's paintings because he's not very good at it (plus it would be way too controversial for anyone to have such an exhibit). I can go to my local Thomas Kinkaid franchise and buy paintings/prints better than his sceneries :P

But yes, like someone who mentioned this before, I also wish Hitler was a much better painter -- it's a big What-If, but the European War may have been avoided if he became an artist instead. Or at least the worst part of it, the Holocaust, would possibly had been avoided.

That's right, Hitler is on a bad side of the fence and displaying his bad art is not topic which would have a good press. (Same thing with photos of Michael Jackson with kids - baaaad.)

There is however a market for his paintings and even false Hitler's paintings are fetching substantial sums. Like all rare collectibles

I have a feeling, after thinking a bit, that war would start anyway. No matter how good would be Hitler's paintings after his studies, he would have no money, would enlist to the army and start political career after WWI.

Writing this post and being fresh after watching some dokumentaries about Hitler and re-reading Bullocks biography, I get an idea for the new thread.
" Who was behind Hitler? Who promoted him? For whom he really worked?"

I don't believe in miraculous political careers happening overnight.
