A Slovak online auction has just proved that art by the world’s most vicious dictator is still considered valuable by some people. On Sunday Hitler’s painting ‘Maritime Nocturno’ fetched €32,000 at Darte auction house.
The picture entitled ‘Maritime Nocturno’ was sold to an anonymous buyer.
The 1913 work was estimated at €25,000 with a starting price of €10,000. It was put on sale by the family of a Slovak artist who had apparently met Hitler in Vienna, where the future Fuhrer was pursuing his ambition to become a professional artist. The 60x48cm picture depicts a glittering sea under a full moon.
“I look at him as an artist. In 1913, when Hitler painted this picture, he didn’t know what would become of him in the decades to come,” Darte owner Jaroslav Krajnak told Agence France Presse.
In 2011 the auction house sold another Hitler painting from the same collection for €10,200.
Hitler was interested in art from early childhood. As a young man he even painted for a living. In the late 1900s he attempted to enter the Vienna Fine Arts Academy but failed.

I don't just say this because I'm in the American Nazi Party, but I like this painting.  I think it shows talent.  I'm no artists, but as they say, you don't have to be a chicken to judge an egg.  I likes what I likes.  I like this.

Wouldn't you just love to know who bought it?  It would be great if the buyer were a National Socialist, and not some wealthy collector who will buy anything that may go up in value.

  1. Compare this painting-which took talent, to some "modern art" monstrosity that would sell for so much more in some NYC gallery. Some of this jewish inspired modern stuff looks like someone vomited on a canvas. I wouldnt be surprised if some of it literally was that!

  2. Hitler was just a misunderstood artist. Rejection is the most brutal of human conditions and young Adolf underwent the metamorphosis into the monster of our historical lore by his rejection from art school. See him his happiest and read all about it at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2010/02/happy-little-hitler.html
