"Germania" Red Pencil Sketch
"Germania" (25.6cm by 45.2cm)

This is a Vienna Opera House Figure Study, rendered in red pencil, signed Hitler Adolf.

This sketch is contemporary with several similar figure studies dated to 1912 shown in Billy Price's Adolf Hitler: The Unknown Artist on page 135 (Figure 196) and page 163 (Figure 326). That drawing is also shown signed with the reversed name.

This sketch is accompanied by an original NSDAP signed letter describing the art as a red pencil sketch titled "Germania" as the art of Adolf Hitler, rendered in 1912.

This is a very rare piece of Hitler art, in that he disliked figure studies, as he was not particularly adept at rendering animate objects with any degree of accuracy. This inability to dra w the human form is one of the primary reasons he was rejected from acceptance to the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts, having failed his test drawings -- virtually all of them figure studies.

Gloriette Gardens at Schloß Schönbrunn
The Gloriette Gardens at Schloß Schönbrunn (34.8cm by 45cm)

Aquarel watercolor of a portion of the Schloß Schönbrunn, a rendition of the Gloriette at the palace in Vienna, Austria initialed A. H.  Hitler was documented as painting the Gloriette while is was living in the hostel at Wurlitzergasse, selling the paintings to a nearby picture framer, probably Morgenstern. As this painting is numbered "17", it was most likely painted in early 1909, while he was still in a partnership with Hanisch, who sold Hitler's paintings in exchange for a portion of the profits. Just after the break-up of the partnership (which resulted in the arrest of Hansch for embezzlement), Hitler moved into the Mendemannstrasse hostel.

This painting was acquired directly from Peter Jahn many years ago.

This exact painting is described on pages 161-162 of The Linz File  by Charles de Jaeger, described to the author by Peter Jahn as: "He [Hitler] also told Peter Jahn that he painted simply to earn a living and never regarded himself as an artist; his natural bent was for architectural design. This is apparent in the detail Hitler gives to buildings in his pictures -- especially noticeable, according to Peter Jahn in Hitler's watercolour of the Gloriette summerhouse in the gardens of the palace at Schönbrunn, summer seat of the Austrian emperors. Hitler painted it while he was living at Wurlitzergasse and sold it to a picture-framer in a nearby street. It was common practice at the time to offset a frame that was in the window for sale by putting a pleasant landscape picture inside it, and this particular one was used over and over again. It had remained with the picture-framer's family until discovered by Peter Jahn.

This painting is from his late 1908 to early 1909 period.

The painting is permanently mounted on a 38.5cm by 49.8cm carrier. This was common for frame fillers as are the markings indicating the framing area, seen on the face.  There are traces of an old penciled notation on the face too faint to read.

Linz Skyline
Linz landscape. (34.0 cm by 25.0 cm)

A pencil on linen textured paper sketch signed "Adolf Hitler" and dated "1908" of the Vienna period.

This drawing depicts the skyline of Linz, as viewed from the Urfahr suburbs across the Danube River in a landscape orientation. The bridge, castle, and cathedral, as well as other prominent landmarks of the time are drawn in excellent detail. This particular scene, from this vantage point is described: "Although Linz resembled a large market town with seven or eight stately buildings to testify to its medieval magnificence, it was the cultural center of Upper Austria. A bridge across the Danube led to the suburb of Urfahr, which lay in the shadow of a small mountain called the Postlingberg. From the mountaintop there unfolded a wonderful panorama of the city and the surrounding plains. It was a view that the young dilettante [Hitler] especially admired." And, "A handful of his architectural drawings made at that time have survived, and they show that he was capable of extraordinarily bold designs...."

Further, in a 1908 letter from Adolf Hitler to a friend, Gustl Kubizek, he asks ".... Would you be so good as to buy for me a copy of "Guide to the Danube City of Linz," not the Wöhrl, but the actual Linz one published by Krakowitzer. On the cover there is a picture of a girl from Linz, and in the background there is Linz seen from the Danube with the bridge and the castle...."

Payne speculates from this letter that Hitler was continuing to work on his plans for the reconstruction of Linz, and that Hitler continued to maintain an interest in this city enough to spend 60 Kronen for this guidebook, not an insignificant sum of money in those early days.

This particular drawing was acquired in its original frame, mat, and glass. In order to preserve it from any further deterioration, it has been remounted, hinged, matted and framed with museum-quality, acid-free, UV resistant materials

And "His intense fascination with architecture was reflected in his numerous drawings of houses, churches, public buildings and city scenes."

Still Life with Flowers. (20.8 cm by 22.4 cm) Aquarel double-sided frame filler signed A. Hitler of the very early Vienna period.

This painting depicts a red flowering plant in a plain vase on one side and a still life with fruit on the reverse.  Only the side with the flower is signed.

This painting was originally intended as a generic frame filler with differing colors and subject matter used to fill the empty portion of a frame in order to enhance its appearance.  The flower painting is predominantly green, brown, and red.  The fruit uses yellows and oranges and a buff and off-white background.

This has a very early block letter A. HiTLER style signature with a fully formed "E" and all capital letters, except for the "i".  This signature is most similar to and consistent with the one which is dated 1904 and depicted on page 21 of Adolf Hiter: The Unknown Artist, by Billy Price.

This painting has been pH buffered and ultrasonically encapsulated with argon gas in a UV protective inert sleeve.

The condition is near excellent with some minor signs of handling. There are several small holes at the corners from tacks used to hold it in place in a number of frames.

Ruins with Arches. (15.8 cm by 11.0 cm) Pen and Ink book illustration end paper initialed A.H. of the very early Vienna period.

This drawing depicts a party of explorers examining a site with very old ruins.

This drawing was applied to page of a book measuring 7-1/4 by 4-5/8 inches.  The ruins appear to be medieval, and the explorers dressed in a style of the 17th century.  The figures are typically minimal and out of proportion with the scene, a consistent issue with most of Hitler's art.  The architectural details are far more precisely rendered.  The cloudy sky and flock of birds show very minimal detail.

This has a very early block letter A. H. style initials are typical of a number of examples of Hitler's art dating from 1905 to 1912.

This drawing has been pH buffered and ultrasonically encapsulated with argon gas in a UV protective inert sleeve.

Moody Sky
Moody Sky. (14.6 cm by 9.5 cm) Aquarel postal initialed AH of the Vienna period.

This painting depicts a moody, cloudy mountain skyline in subdued blues and purples on sepia-colored, thick postcard stock. In most of his work, Hitler is well known for his propensity to depict the sky as a roiling -- almost living -- entity. His work was heavily influenced by Rudolf von Alt, "...a prominent watercolorist of the late 19th century, was one of Hitler's favorites: "my teacher," as he said. He adopted Alt's preference for realistic, detailed scenes done in delicate tones, and precisely copied Alt's typically cloudy skies."

It was originally intended as a postal card, but was never mailed. The subject covers the upper half of the card in a landscape orientation.

This painting has been pH buffered and ultrasonically encapsulated in a museum quality frame.

White Orchids
White Orchids. (24 x 29 cm)

Aquarel on gray paper signed "A Hitler" of the Munich period in a portrait orientation, double matted and framed under glass.

This is a rare rendition of orchids.  When painting flowers, Hitler tended to prefer painting carnations.  This was probably a specifically commissioned artwork

Billy Price, author of Hitler: The Unknown Artist documented this exact painting on page 159 as Figure 307 and estimated the date as 1913.  This is based on the style of signature used and comparison with other known Hitler paintings of that year. 

There is little doubt this is one of the Munich paintings, since Hitler did not paint during 1913 prior to his move to Munich. Munich paintings are much rarer than Vienna paintings, as Hitler was not inclined to actively seek them out in his search of his old works. He spent a little more than a year painting -- from May 1913 to August 1914 -- before he volunteered for the Bavarian military service.

The painting has a 1980 dated Peter Jahn certificate and authentication describing the painting precisely in German, and photographed with Vienna Austria notary markings and stamps as shown at the left (front) and the rear of the document with a photograph of the painting as shown here.

Country Church
The Country Church. (Approximately 24cm x 41.5cm. (9-1/2 inches by 12-1/2 inches) mounted in the original Morgenstern frame)

Aquarel signed "A Hitler" and dated "1914" of the Munich period in a portrait orientation.  This painting is mounted on a Morgenstern stamped pasteboard carrier and framed in its original Morgenstern stamped ebony and gilt frame.

This is a view of an unidentified country church in heavy woods (most likely in the Munich, Bavaria area) rendered in a portrait orientation.

This is one of several paintings that was sold to one of the Vienna art dealer and frame makers that Hitler dealt with after his partnership with his roommate Hannish was dissolved.  This is documented in several sources, including The Linz File by Charles de Jagaer (pages 20 and 163). Both the carrier and the back paper are stamped with the art dealer's name and address on the back.

This painting combined with the original Morgenstern frame are one of the most difficult Hitler art items to find complete and together.

The frame shows some damage in several places and the original back paper was cut to expose the back of the carrier, but remains easily verifiable as the original.

Rotterdam Cathedral
The Rotterdam Cathedral. (31.6 x 42.1 cm)

Aquarel signed "A Hitler" and dated "1913" of the Munich period in a portrait orientation. Original mounting on cardboard, a small tear, repaired long ago, approximately 12 cm from the bottom, 11 cm in from the left edge, and 4 cm long. It is barely noticeable to the unaided eye and does not detract. There is evidence of framing on the mat, and at the very edges of the painting.

This is a view of the Rotterdam Cathedral rendered in a portrait orientation, showing the streets bustling with early morning activity. It was most likely painted in München after May 26th, 1913, when Hitler moved into the Josef Popp residence at 34/III Schleissheimerstrasse.

Frau Popp in an interview several years later recalled "He began his painting straight away and stuck to his work for hours. In a couple of days I saw two lovely pictures finished and lying on the table, one of the cathedral and the other of the Theatinerkirche. After that my lodger [Hitler] used to go out early of a morning with his portfolio under his arm in search of customers."

Like all the Munich period paintings, this was painted in the latter part of the year.

This is a small frame filler of a millhouse and waterwheel. Mills and waterwheels were the source of several of Hitler's earlier works (compare with A4, above).

This one was painted in the later part of 1913 in Munich.

This painting is accompanied by an original signed WWII letter on NSDAP letterhead, which names the painting and describes it as a watercolor picture painted by the Führer and Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler in the year 1913 and shows the title and how it is signed and dated. This appears to be some sort of inventory document. The painting itself is numbered in pencil on the back with the number "236".

Hitler paintings with original Third Reich paperwork are extremely rare.
