Hitler's art of self-delusion
As a German auction house prepares to sell off three of Adolf Hitler's watercolours, new evidence has emerged suggesting that the Nazi leader remained convinced he was an artistic genius and was often irritatingly obsessed by art despite his failure as a painter.
The three paintings are kitsch displays of cottages, mills and churches nestling in rural landscapes, which were painted in 1910 and 1911 in Vienna. At the time Hitler was struggling to begin a career as an artist and developing many of his anti-Semitic theories.
The works will be put up for sale by a Nuremberg auction house next month and are expected to fetch more than €15,000 (£13,000) apiece. Experts on Hitler's paintings rate one of the watercolours, entitled White Church in the Wachau, as one of his chief works.
I think today his paintings would of got him into art school, he would however found it very hard at the time of his youth because of the amount of students that would have been accepted the places being limited. Only the best artist would be accepted and not those that could learn to improve.
Some of his paintings I like however he was not a genius he may of thought he was. But yes I would put one of his better works on my wall
