They are from a younger Hitler, in fact one could say that these paintings are the reason for what he became, it can be argued that it was his rejection from art school because he could only do landscapes that sent him down the path he took.

They do have *some* intrinsic value. I've seen worse landscapes in galleries all over. The connection to his notoriety is hard to deny, though. It's too bad he didn't remain a painter.

Yeah, heaven knows if I got kicked out of art school, I'd try to exterminate the Jews.

I don't have any real issue with anyone owning Hitler's paintings, though I think they'd serve a better purpose in a museum on public display than in a private collection.

Yeah, but if you owned them and could use the money, would you sell them? I sure as hell would.

Depending on what the use for the money was, sure. The chances of me ever owning art worth anything are slim, though.

I could see that. Dictator hitler is much scarier than angry painter hitler.
