ORIGINAL ADOLF HITLER WATERCOLOR

Munich Looking West

Adolf Hitler. "Munich Looking West." Watercolor on paper. A stunning view of Munich from a small outlying neighborhood of small houses/ farms and possibly slums presided over by a Gothic cathedral. While Hitler admired the architectural significance and symbolism of churches dominating city skylines, he made every effort in his future plans to reshape Europe through the eyes of an Aryan artist. Again, we see Hitler's flat sunset complimented by his intense use of umber and ochre offset by lush lavender and misty purples. He undoubtedly envied the position of absolute power enjoyed by the Roman Catholic church over the people of the Reich. He repeatedly and subtly showed this in his art and in this piece in particular with the cathedral dominating the painting by occupying its center as opposed to it being left or right of the horizon central. The subtle detail of the church contrasts sharply with the wild and disordered grove of trees and seems to be far off and aloof to the humble residents of these small outlying structures. 5" x 9.75". Signed lower left.
