Did you know that Adolf Hitler was a painter, deeply interested in art? Thankfully, many works of his were recovered after the World War II.
In autobiography the artist described his feelings and life as an artist. The politician attended entrance exam to the Academy of Fire but failed twice. Hitler had also talent in architecture. Unfortunately because of unfavourable circumstances he didn’t proceed as an architect. Later on, the artist continued painting postcards covering scenes of Vienna. Even the World War I didn’t stop him from painting as he served in it. The latest Hitler’s paintings were painted in his idle hours through WWI. Most of painter’s works were later sold in the auction. To sum up, that’s the whole story of the politician’s artistic side of life.
Hitler’s words to British ambassador Nevile Henderson before the outbreak of WWII:
“I am an artist and not a politician. Once the Polish question is settled, I want to end my life as an artist.”
