Why make a list of paintings by one of the most hated men in history? No, I'm not a neo-nazi, I do love history and I find little twists of fate so interesting. Who knows what would be if this genocidal maniac had become successful with his art early on, but alas not. Still, here are some of his artworks...

Hitler was a great student of the fine arts and studied music, opera, painting, sculpture, and architecture. He sold his paintings and postcards to earn a living during his Vienna years (1908–1913). In his youth, he wanted to become a painter, but his aspirations were ruined because he failed the entrance exam of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Hitler was rejected twice by the institute, once in 1907 and again in 1908.

He is estimated to have created between 2000 and 3000 drawings, watercolors, and oil paintings. His artistic talent revealed itself at an early age and continued painting and drawing throughout his life. Even while behind the front lines in World War 1, he continued to paint in his spare time and contributed instructional drawings and cartoons to the military newspaper. His art continued throughout his leadership of Germany and included detailed building plans, furniture design, city planning, and monuments.

This list is truly stunning. Hitler was such a turd but wonderful at painting. He should've stuck to it instead of going apeshit on Jews.

Beautiful paintings. I didn't knew he studied music,opera,sculpture,painting and arhitecture.He would've been great at these things if he wouldn't get reject by the institute.

He appeared to have some talent, but there are flaws in his works, such as shadows that cast in different directions within the same picture and reflections on water that doesn't really mirror what is being reflected. That said, he defintely had more talent than I, and he may have been successful at art. I wonder if the entrance exams were extremely tough, or if there was another underlying issue that prompted his rejections.

Just a thought, were the judges that rejected him Jewish?

If so, it might have had an effect on how things went in his later years.

Wow, he had some talent. If I ever get enough money, I may have to buy one. Then burn it and piss on the ashes.
