If he had been accepted into art school, then WW2 and all the attendant horrors might have been avoided.
When Hitler was denied entrance to art school, was he justified in being pissed and resentful? Looking at his art, did he have talent or was he a hack?
He was denied, and then went on a rampage.
He had more talent and showed more depth than George Bush.
What a loser! Why didn't he go to Paris or Berlin and try to get into an art school there?
he definitely wasn't a great artist but he would easily be accepted to a decent art school now.
I would say he had talent, especially if these are unschooled works. Of course, Leni Riefenstahl had talent too. As did Robert Frost, who beat his wife. Talent does not equal a good heart.
He's very Thomas Kincaid!! If only they'd had QVC back then!
Robert Frost beat his wife?
How much are the paintings worth?
He painted buildings, primarily. That does not take a lot of skill. No portraits? No people? No Mona Lisa? There...THERE..are subjects that require talent to master.
Not a bad illustrator, however still a poor artist. He was good at architectural objects, but all of the people are cartoonish and out of proportion and seem to lack a human dimension. I guess he treated people the way he painted them.
They seem lonely and angry. Like John Wayne Gacy painting Thomas Kinkade.
Looked like he had talent...perhaps he wasn't let into art school because of his VERY sick personality?
He painted in many styles. Suggests to me an imitative process. More of an illustrator than an artist. Certainly very competent but not original or unique and not even a style of his own.
The holocaust definitely affects public opinion of his art
That shit looks like the stuff you'd see at a Starving Artists sale at the Holiday Inn in Cherry Hill on a Sunday in January.
I can't even draw a straight line!

Hilter could've painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and people would call his art crap. It's difficult to imagine that a "monster" can be multi-dimensional.
It's the same with celebrities and rabid fans who hold onto their every tweet and buy their crappy merchandise.
