Hi Kunstler,Kunstler wrote: Getting ahead of myself slightly then for a moment by moving out of the great hall, but still within the Berghof is another painting known to have hung at there, it was reputedly a portrait of Eva Braun and it hung in her bedroom. Perhaps someone will know the Artist? I also believe this painting still exists.
Here is the painting that has been said to be a nude of Eva Braun that hung in her bedroom in the Berghof. The only source where I can recall reading this is in Nerin Gun's biography of EB - I can't recall exactly what he says about it, but some of Gun's statements in that book are questionable. The painting has been said to be by Adolf Ziegler, and to perhaps have been a model's body with EB's face painted on (source: US National Archives).
But the original does still exist in England, and I don't think this face looks like EB at all.
The painting at http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r216 ... 125643.jpg is another Ziegler painting called simply "Akt" (Nude). It was displayed in the Haus der Deutschen Kunst.
I think this next one was a Bismarck portrait, if I remember right. I have a good clear view of it somewhere but I can't find it just now. Below is a view of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor walking past this area in the Berghof corridor when they visited Hitler in October 1937 (credit: Ullstein). The portrait can be seen on the wall.
