I'm looking at this last image of Hitler and noticed the very thin epaulet on the right side of his shirt. Funning I never notice such thin epaulette's on any of the early Nazi shirts.

That in itself would make a good thread.

This is not a portrait of Hitler—but a very interesting painting none the less. I've never seen this image before.

Johnny R.

Painted by Hans Larwin—born in Vienna, Austria in 1873. He studied in Vienna before visiting America where he lived from 1922 to 1924. His considerable artistic talent was recognized by various organizations, and after exhibiting at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Palette and Chisel Club, as well as other venues in Memphis and Milwaukee, he gained a fine reputation with collectors and dealers alike. He found a ready and eager market for his paintings in the United States, which enabled him to return to his native Austria. Once back in his home city of Vienna he was given a professorship at the Vienna Academy, which he held from 1930 until his death in 1938. This particular painting "Death Directs the Bullet" was painted during the 1914-1918 First World War while Larwin was in Vienna, and it vividly portrays the horror of war in a most macabre but surrealistic manor. Perhaps snipers have the most negative of reputations, as they are ordered to lie in wait hidden from the eyes of their victims. They are patient and professional, their survival depending on their accuracy and cunning, usually with two special rifles used in case one fails or jams. There is a pile of spent cartridges next to this "messenger of death" indicating that he has had a productive day, while the centuries old symbol of lost mortality places a fleshless hand onto the shoulder of his student, urging him on to even more successes.

I can't imagine its an actual epaulet so much as it's a just loop to keep the cross belt in place.

Sketches of Hitler and Nazi officials by British artist given access to the dictator's HQ to go under the hammer

Sketches of Hitler and Nazi officials by British artist given access to the Nazi Munich HQ called Brown House
Drawings of Hitler and his henchmen sketched in 1931 by a British artist who was allowed into the dictator's lair have emerged. Helen McKie was the only woman allowed to sketch in Hitler's Munich headquarters, called Brown House, and she produced 17 pictures of the top Nazis. Drawn two years before Hitler came to power and 8 years before the start of WW2, the images are a glimpse into the early stages of Nazism. The Brown House became the Nazi HQ on January 1, 1931 and it was named after the colour of the uniforms. The drawings were put into an album and McKie wrote inside: "Sketched in Hitler's Brown House Munich by special permission of Hitler's aide-de-camp Bruelenen - I was the only woman ever allowed to sketch here."

Just been looking through the images and noticed this one posted earlier, It's an official Hoffman portrait of Hitler.

If you look closely behind his right shoulder there appears to be a ghostly image of a hand resting on his head and a right arm clothed in loose clothes with creases, not unlike a monks habit!!, or am I spooking myself out? I've slightly brightened the image

Yeah, that's sure spooky JR....but, I think it's the glass reflection of the person taking the photo of the framed photo, way back when.... :)

Looks like a glass reflection from an image within a picture frame?

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking...unless Hitler was supposed to be a monk, and missed his calling. :D

Hi guys, I think you're right, never thought about that scenario, I thought it might have been the "Grim Reaper" telling us something! :lol:
