Adolf Hitler's Paintings


Critics dismissed his art as nothing spectacular, just above average. But it does make you wonder, if he had not failed as an artist, would he have changed history?

Visit Hitler Historical Museum for more of his paintings.

I don't think his artistic ability had anything to do with the choices that he made. He was a twisted, deranged man who obviously had no respect life or mankind.

Fresh Mommy said...

Wow, it's amazing to see that someone so filled with hate produced such gentle paintings...

Haupi said...

I'm honestly surprised because his work isn't half bad. I can't imagine anyone as deranged as Hitler doing work like this??? Thanks for sharing this.

Kirby said...

I never even knew he was an artist, he wasnt so bad at suprisingly...

CB said...

Like Kirby, I didn't even know he did art. It's interesting how the choices we make in life change who we turn out to be. If he had been just an artist, perhaps he just would of been a racist artist satisfied expressing through his art instead of the racist violent leader.

I can see that he was talented, but gosh darn it, I couldn't support that talent because he's a poophead.

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Yes, he really had a lot of twisted beliefs and issues! I do think that his artwork is good...especially the buildings. It is amazing how anyone can think the way he did and that many agreed with him enough to allow him to get to the position he did.

Blessings & Aloha!

I knew he was a painter, but I had never seen his paintings before. Interesting.

I did not know he was a painter. Not so bad but thinking about the kind of man he has, a horrible twisted person without thought for anyone but himself turns me off his ability to paint.

Talk about the artistic temperment!!! This guy took it to the enth degree. It totally creeps me out to even consider his weird and evil thought processes. I guess we could say, "Talent doesn't make the man. The man makes his talent."

I think its interesting his love and detail for architecture in these pieces. The connection between his detail in the buildings in the art and his real life structures is pretty spooky. He always seemed to have a fascination for buildings..sad so many died because of his evil. Goes to show talent is in the eye of the beholder. My cat has stinky breath. JJ

I do really think that he eventually was Deranged, due to
a biological illness of some sort.

Obviously at one time he had potential.

Perhaps when he was gassed in WW1,
it affected his brain?

Perhaps it was Psyphillis or Drug Use?

Of course Power Leads To madness + Evil also...

ADOLF HITLER IS WHAT: TWISTED,DERANGED,RACIST,?

EXCEPT FOR RAJ THE REST OF YOU ARE JUST PLAIN IGNORANT ABOUT YOUR OWN WORLD'S HISTORY! EMBARRASSING FOR PEOPLE OF YOUR AGES TO NOT KNOW THE FACTS ABOUT YOUR WORLD HISTORY AND NOT JUST WHAT YOU SEE IN MOVIES OR HEAR FROM OTHERS WHO HAVE NO CLUE WHAT THEY SPEAK OF.

ADOLF HITLER WAS AN INCREDIBLE PATRTIOT OF GERMANY AND A DECORATED WAR HERO FROM WW1. HE CARED FOR THE PEOPLE OF GERMANY SO MUCH THAT HE ROSE UP TO CHANCELLOR IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO PASS LAWS,ETC.. TO HELP HIS PEOPLE. 1)NO ONE WAS TO EVER BE HUNGRY (A FULL STOMACH FOR ALL), 2)NO ONE WAS TO BE HOME LESS (EVERYONE WOULD HAVE SHELTER), 3)NO ONE IF THEY WANTED WOULD BE WITHOUT EDUCATION (FREE SCHOOLING FOR ALL), 4)NO ONE WOULD BE WITHOUT MEDICAL (FREE HEALTH CARE FOR ALL), 5)EVERY FAMILY WOULD BE ABLE TO AFFORD A QUALITY AUTOMOBILE FOR AN ECONOMICAL PRICE. IN A NUT SHELL: THAT WOULD BE THE VOLKSWAGON BEETLE BROUGHT TO YOU BY ADOLF HITLER HIMSELF.

ALL SERVICES ABOVE WOULD BE FREE FOR THOSE WHO WEREN'T ABLE TO PAY,COMPLIMENTS OF THE FUHRER HIMSELF AND THE THIRD REICH. OH AND: NOT ONE CITIZEN OF THE THIRD REICH WOULD EVER HAVE TO FEAR DANGEROUS TRASH AS THEY HAVE IN THE U.S. WALKING ANY STREET ALONE AND AT ANY TIME OF THE DAY OR NIGHT BECAUSE EUROPEANS (ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO ARE UNDER THE THIRD REICH) KNOW HOW TO ACT TO ONE ANOTHER WITH RESPECT,CARING AND LOVE. THE WAY YOU SHOULD TREAT YOUR FELLOW HUMAN BEING. THERE WOULD BE NO GHETTO TRASH TO DO YOU HARM SUCH AS STEAL, ROB, ASSAULT, RAPE OR MURDER. THIRD REICH TERRITORY WOULD BE A CAUCASIAN PERSON'S PARADISE! LIKE HEAVEN ON EARTH!!!

AND SOME OF YOU DARE SAY INHUMANE?: ADOLF HITLER WAS A VEGETARIAN AND NOT JUST FOR HEALTH REASONS BUT FOR THE CRUELTY ASPECT. HE LOVED ANIMALS SO MUCH THAT ONCE THE THIRD REICH HAD TOTAL CONTROL OF ALL OF EUROPE HE WAS GOING TO HAVE A LAW PASSED THAT WOULD STATE 'HUNTING' WOULD NO LONGER BE ALLOWED.

RACIST? ADOLF HITLER HAD NOTHING AGAINST ANYONE ACCEPT THOSE WHO WERE JEWISH. DID HE STATE THAT A PERFECT HUMAN COULD BE ACHIEVED BY BREEDING PURELY WITHIN YOUR OWN RACE? YES HE DID. HE MEANT THAT IF ANY RACE WANTED TO BUILD THE SAME SORT OF PERFECT HUMAN THEY SHOULD STAY WITHIN THE GENES OF THEIR OWN PEOPLE. HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH HATING BLACKS, HISPANICS, ASIANS,ETC.. JUST PRIDE FOR YOUR OWN IS ALL.

IF THE THINGS WITH THE JEWS WOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED, NO ONE WOULD SAY ANYTHING NEGATIVE AGAINST ADOLF AT ALL. BY THE WAY, ADOLF NEVER KILLED ONE JEW, NOT ONE. AN ORDER MIGHT HAVE BEEN GIVEN BUT HE PERSONALLY NEVER TOOK THE LIFE OF ONE JEWISH PERSON.

BEFORE YOU GO CONDEMING SOMEONE ELSE FOR TRYING TO GAIN TERRITORY FOR HIS PEOPLE, LOOK AT YOUR OWN COUNTRY'S ORIGIN (THE U.S.). WE ALMOST ANNIHILATED AN ENTIRE RACE OF PEOPLE, THE NATIVE AMERICAN. WE STOLE (THRU BRUTE FORCE) LAND THAT WAS OWNED BY MEXICO. WHAT WAS IT:TEXAS,ARIZONA,UTAH,CALIFORNIA,NEVADA,NEW MEXICO? NATIVE AMERICANS WERE COMPLTETELY PUSHED WEST WARD AND NOW LIVE ON VERY SMALL PLOTS OF LANDS CALLED RESERVATIONS.

LET'S NOT EVEV GET INTO THE WHOLE ARGUEMENT ABOUT SLAVERY. AFRICANS BEING SOLD BY THEIR OWN PEOPLE TO THE ENGLISH AND DUTCH WHO BROUGHT THEM AGAINST THEIR WILL TO THE U.S. TO PERFORM VERY HARD FORCED LABOR UNDER THE CONTROL OF WHIPS, DOGS AND GUNS FOR 1619 TO THE LATE 1800'S WHEN THEY WERE FINALLY RELEASED WITH THE WINNING OF THE UNION MILITARY OVER THE CONFEDERATES. YET BLACKS EVENTHOUGH THEY FOUGHT IN NOT ONLY THE CIVIL WAR BUT ALSO WW1, WW2 AND KOREA WERE THEY NOT ALLOWED TO EVEN VOTE TIL THE 1960'S. LOL, TOTALLY RIDICULOUS!

WE HAVE BLACK TOPPED, CONCRETED AND STRIPMALLED OVER WHAT WAS ONCE ONE GREAT FOREST 3,000 MILES WIDE FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC OCEANS. DISGUSTING! WE ALMOST WIPED OUT A NATIVE PEOPLE AND WE ENSLAVED ANOTHER FROM A FAR AWAY LAND. IF ANYONE IS TO BE CONDEMNED IT IS THE HYPOCRITICAL U.S. GOVERNMENT AND THEIR PATRIOTICALLY BLINDED PEOPLE WHO DO NOTHING MORE THAN POINT THEIR FINGER ABROAD.

Hm...If Hitler didn't fail as an artist, the holocaust might had not happened... Just why did he blame the Jews. I bet he knew they didn't do anything bad and wanted to take his anger out on people. These paintings are awesome, but his personallity isn't. Although, I don't think there's a thing known as hate. I don't hate him, but at the same time, I don't like him. :P

It seems to me that AH as a young man was quite an idealist. His painting and writing show that he at least had above average ability to express himself.

This work as a painter also reveals that for much of his younger years he must have been a strident "people watcher" - storing his observance for later use in the political sphere. It appears however, that he did not react well to rejection and had an even worse time coming to grips with the state of the world around him.

At some point he lost any fear whatsoever of expressing his views to people and in that expression found his way to consorting with other histrionic right wing nationalistic figures. His success with the political machine helped compensate for his inner inadequacies and perhaps all of WWII was simply his inner little boy sticking a finger in the eye of everyone that ever told him he was not good enough.

It's easy enough to hate the caricature of the man from so many decades ago, and I suppose it's important to always remember the deeply evil results that sprang from him eventually; but review of the man's actual life reveals a rejected, brooding adolescent unable to cope with the conditions around him whose time in prison served to steel his resolve further and focus his idealism into a grand plan of action with psychopathic disregard for how the action would affect others.

Hitler was Eric Harris or Dylan Klebold grown into an adult functioning political animal. What ideals and visions he could not convince some people of, he was determined to force upon them with horrific consequences.

These paintings may hold some clues as to the "nature/nurture" argument - some evidence that even the most sinister of dark adult minds may have had humble and bright beginnings.

@ EDELWOLF8945
whatever you think he was doing, free medicine, school, etc for the germans, the provider of those services are SLAVES.

Oh and I agree with you about the hypocrites americans, but what can the world do, now that it's already the past. along with the slavery in US as well, we can only watch and control from our position and not being a racist.

So, in your logic,as long as one never do the action and only command people, he is always innocent? Nice logic you have there.

Hitler was the greatest man to ever walk on european soil , but most sheeple prefer to believe the lies printed about him , of course they are the majority of jew lies, there were NO gas chambers and he was one hell of a great artist, Hitler is a saing and our Lord knows he was the one who had the only courage enough to stand against the seedline of satan which is today the edomite jews, the false jews who have deceived the world and opponents of Hitler, Nobody ever speaks of the evils of Stalin or Lenin because they were jews and killed hundreds of millions of white christians yet Hitler is continually trounced as killing a measly 48,000 jews, Sadly, there were no gas chambers but there should have been. When it is too late the people will see they have sided with the evil wrong side but God will have closed the books. I long for that day when the sight behelds their unseeing eyes and they see their eternal doom before them. Goodbye demons.

Germaniajim said...

I hope it does, as far as Hitler is concerned we need him more than ever, Not so much Isrehell or Stalin, or that jew Piece of shit Lenin who murdered 100 million christians, yet the idiots on this blog never mention his deeds, only Hitler who never killed one stinkin jew, tho he should have, Tell me how there added up 448,000 more jews in 1948 than in 1938 considerring this fake 6 million that someohow died magically? Where were these gas chambers and did anyone ever see one? I have yet to see one, that hasnt been built after the war, the one at Auschwitz was bult after by the russians, and if you morons prefer to believe that they wouldnt fudge the numbers because they were all filthy jews than you deserve your fate when Yahweh comes. Support your edomite jews, and hope you like living in TArtarus. fools like John Hagee think there is a rapture too, hahahahahahahah

Hitler did not choose to be a politician. He became one after being rejected twice by the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. He would have wanted to end his life as an artist.

i'm surprised about some of the comments, like:"oh, how could such a horrible man paint so well?" your ability in music and crafts doesn't have anything to do with your racial or political ideas... so in your opinion just the well behaved people should be able to do art??? i really don't get this

I didn't realize there was this talent. It's a very interesting share.
