Adolf Hitler's Paintings

Hitler is known for being one of the most evil and murderous leaders in history. All of these Adolf Hitler's paintings are from 1914-1917. It's interesting to see that the bloodiest dictator of the 20th century was painting flowers, cute dogs and women.

Adolf Hitler, failed dictator of Germany during the Second World War, produced a variety of oil and watercolor paintings. In addition to being responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of people, including the genocide of six million Jews, Hitler was an artist who used cathedrals and flowers as subject matter for many of his paintings.

Before becoming involved in politics, Hitler applied several times to The Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, hoping to further his artistic career. He was turned down each time, and was forced to live on the streets, selling paintings to tourists and exchanging them in restaurants for meals.
