This Is What The Artwork of Adolf Hitler Looked Like

August 9, 2017 | 6 Comments » | Topics: Interesting

Before putting his hand to the executive order that lead to millions of innocent individuals being killed, nearly destroying the Western world as we know it, Adolf Hitler was an upcoming (re: unsuccessful) artist.

He actually applied to the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, only to be turned down not once but twice due to his “unfitness for painting” – it’s not hard to see why.

It’s hard to believe that before he instigated the rise of Nazi Germany and appointed himself Supreme Ruler Of The Reich, he was actually painting flowers, buildings and monuments.

Ironically enough, it was those very scenes and landscapes which were ultimately laid to waste by his future actions.

These artworks provide an eerie glimpse into the mind of one of the most evil and dictatorial individuals in modern history, even amongst colourful scenic landscapes are images of German tanks from WW1 littering a barren wasteland, still smouldering.

    His art looks like something a grade schooler did. Very elementary with no soul.

    I think the work is very good, I would even buy some of the paintings. It is a pity that the art school did not accept him, who knows, maybe there would have been a different history

  • Jac Jac

    The discrepancies between the pieces suggests he took credit for someone else’s work.

      You do understand that these are different dates? Types of sketches, materials and time involved. Drawing over years looks very different as I have done it myself.

  • Pauly Incorrect

    Brilliant and touching. A welcome addition to brighten up any home or synagogue.

    Yeah too bad 6 gorrillon (or is it 5 gorrillon now?) had to die of typhus and starvation after loosing supply lines that this art cannot be as appreciated.

    At last all the gas chambers were properly destroyed so we don’t see any evidence for them when we get to visit these sacred grounds.
