Here's your chance to own a Hitler, and for much cheaper than you'd think (although the quality isn't as good as some of his others):

Write a mediocre book, become famous and it becomes a best seller.

Paint a few paintings that otherwise do not seem too remarkable, become famous (good or bad, doesn’t matter) and people will be forever vying for your works, 100, 200 + years.

£10,000 (2002) a pop!!!

How does £10,000 translate to US dollars?

If you ask me he had some real tallent. Damn that Vienna Art School, it they would have accepted him into thier school, there would have been no World War II or any of that nonsense...or at least Hitler would not have takes charge.

I have seen worse art for far more money. Of course, art is in the eye of the beholder.

They will sell regardless because of the artist, and I wonder if they have
been authenticated?

You are absolutely right jakejzg. His painting was great. The director of that Vienna art school was a Jew and that was the start of his hatred of the Jews.

I don't know if you were ironic or not, but I hardly think we could blame the school for not accepting him until we've seen what his competitors produced. :)

And I still maintain that I can not be so certain since I don't know how good the other applicants were. :) But that's just my opinion.

The subject line reminds of the shop window sign - "Genuine antiques made to order" :)

There is a pretty decent book on Hitler art: Adolf Hitler, the unknown artist.

Hitler while staying in the Vienna hostel was reportedly asked by one of his fellow travellers what did he do for a living? Hitler replied that he was a "painter". The fellow replied that there was good money in house decoration - to which Hitler replied with an insulted look - I'm a fine artist, like portraits and landscapes! (this is probably the origins of the housepainting jokes) A man then suggested that he know how to bake a painting and make it look old, but Hitler would have none of it.

Later on at least one occasion: Hitler was in power a sycophant appeared with one of his old paintings and announced how much they paid for it. They soon learned that was a mistake. Hitler once flew into a rage saying: "I was paid almost nothing for it, thats an outrage"

Hitler was facing nearly insuremountable outs trying to get into Vienna Academy of Fine Arts. Hitler didn't even have a what we would cal a highschool diploma. had he been accepted and graduated it would have meant that everything Hitler did would have been instantly accepted in the Vienna art world - just as so much modern art junk is praised today.
Hitlers rejection was probably more do to his lack of education, references and social class than anything else.
