Hitler Art now popular, Page 1

Source: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/germany/6063757/Adolf-H..., Photo: DPA, 21 Aug 2009, visited October 5th, 2010. Some of Hitler’s paintings from 1910-1911 have been describes as “very neutral paintings,” depicting cottages, mills and churches in rural landscapes, which he apparently visited sufficiently long enough to paint them. Although the precise number of extant works by Hitler is unknown, it has been said there were an estimated 723 pictures (paintings?), including sketches in existence. How many other “failed” artists can boast of that many works, and have the skills demonstrated in these many works of art? And how many are attributed to Hitler, merely for the money? Hitler’s paintings are alleged not bought by neo-Nazis or for a glorification of Hitler.
