In 2002 An Art Critic Said That Hitler’s Paintings Displayed A Disinterest In The Human Race

It’s 2002, and a professional critic is casting their eye over a series of historic paintings. Almost 60 years previously, the artist who created them ended his life in a bunker beneath Berlin. But all these decades later, the artistic works of Adolf Hitler have remained a source of great interest. But what does this expert really make of them?

Today, Hitler is remembered as the architect of the Second World War – the bloodiest conflict that our planet has ever seen. But when he was a young man, he also nurtured a passion for art. In fact, he was once part of a burgeoning community of painters and radical thinkers who inhabited the bohemian city of Vienna, Austria.
