Not that I`m particularly fond of Hitler, his actions were horrible and inexcusable, but hey, a painting is a painting. And not a bad painting at that!
Now to what hitler did. Yes, The path in which he took was terribly bad. BUT, if it wasnt for him, we would not be where we are today. Its hard to explain what exactly hitler did to better the world, but one example would be euthanization of peoples with disabilities. Hitler/Germany wasnt the only country to kill off people because of how they were, and wasnt the only country to put them thru horrific studies. The US, and Canada for example for a period of time were also killing off mentally challenged and other challenged peoples, because it was excepted. If it wasnt for hitler going overboard on that whole concept, its possible that other countries wouldnt have banned it for plus years later.
Now for how his artwork actually looksPostcard art.which ironically, is what he did to get
Also, even though Hitler didnt make it into art school, he did continue to paint. that was his source of income along with the cash he got from being an orphan first when his father died. once his mother died of cancer, he had to/decided (not sure) to split it with his sister. Hitler was also busy doing other small jobs to try to support himself. so, even if he made it into art school, theres a possibility that he would have stumbled across the things he actually did stumble across, and go the same path.
Hitler was not accepted into art school because of his `unfitness for painting`. they told him he would be better in the field of architecture. The problem was that he could go into that field because he lacked proper schooling from a...
and minus the terrible cost of life, there were several good results from the war; it pulled America from depression by providing jobs, thus propelling America towards Superpower status, it advanced technology... You probably would not have internet or even a computer if it weren`t for the fact that technology nearly always advances in times of war!
just really plain.
"World domination, or Art?Practically eliminating the Jewish population, or Art?Holocaust, violent death, blood shead, and being hated by millions...or art?Dictatorship following supreme power, or art?self-delivered shot to the head, or art?
Man, this is hard...
wow..that felt weird saying that
That was a really good movie. Has anyone seen it other than Cricket and I?
"we should bring hitler back to life just to kick him in the balls"
One of the most annoying comments I`ve heard about Hitler. I`d rather sit and chat with him, ask him if his views have changed. Kicking him in the balls is just a silly idea. Are you in seventh grade?
"no matter how technically amazing his paintings were it would be clear from looking at them that he was no artist"
This is exactly it. They`re mundane, boring and very unimaginative. His style lacks any interest at all, and they`re not creative or colourful enough to be artistic. If you`re a painter, you paint because you *love* painting, and if you love something passionately, it`s likely you`ll quickly become very goot at it. Hitler was more interested in the buildings themselves, not in actually painting them, so it`s not surprising his pictures are nothing special to look at from an artistic point of view.
Beasts ferocious with hunger will cross the rivers,The greater part of the battlefield will be against Hister.Into a cage of iron will the great one be drawn,When the child of Germany observes nothing.
i think i hitler was just misunderstood is all, but now he is in hell. oh well. i wish we could save them all...
Where was Prof. Daufenhausser at Nuremberg?
How were the artschool people supposed to know that their actions would lead to millions of deaths a few decades later? Don`t judge them too harshly, I`m sure at the time they were doing their jobs and I`m also sure most here would have done the same.
Being a mediocre artist, not from lack of artistic ability, but from lack of professional training, I`d have to agree. Then again, I don`t remember where I heard/read that, and it could just be a bunch of junk that someone just made up. In fact is probably was, maybe something that some artist guessed on recently? I should just stop talking now...
"Yeah and if you come into my livingroom i have an original Hitler work"
"You mean Adolf Hitler, that Nazi guy from Germany?"
"Thats the one!"
"Wow...umm you do know that I`m Jewish right?"
