Sketches allegedly taken from the "portfolio" submitted by a young Adolf Hitler to the Vienna academy of Art. Really?
And some newz art reporter* then wrote: “And a distinguished emeritus dean of art has studied them and said that today they would be considered only up to "moderate GCSE standard." Maybe the art work, but Hitler's? Really?
As a defense to these allegations for the above two sketches, at least, Mr. Irving states: "Hitler virtually never included human beings in his paintings." See also in this same MK Image Gallery, at "Fake Hitler art," Pages 1, 2, 4, and 6.
The fact is, Hitler's artistic abilities were not rejected for poor quality work; he was told that while good, his skills were elsewhere, and they proved his skills good even then.
=Here are several alleged "Hitler sketches" that went up for sale in England, and perhaps some blind fool bought them.=In the several accompanying "Fake Hitler art" images and texts in the Attachment found below, it is shown how Hitler's style and signature are inconsistent with that of the Original style, signature, etc. David Irving, at his Action Report Newsletter (http://www.fpp.co.uk/online/index.html, and, online/p2.html) provides adequate details on what to look for in some offered sketches.
* This dual image appeared in The Telegraph (England), "Hitler sketches that failed to secure his place at art academy to be auctioned; Drawings believed to be those that Adolf Hitler submitted in a failed attempt to gain entry into the Vienna Academy of Art are to be auctioned."
