The Water Colours of Hitler: Recovered Art Works : Homage to Rodolfo Siviero
Fratelli Alinari spa, 1984 - 79 էջ
Quite apart from the rather understandable curiosity they incite in viewers, Hitler's water colors offer considerable food for thought An examination of these works offers some stimulating insights into the aesthetics of Nazism, particularly as to how the emphasis on classicism related to ideas about racial purity. These banal little watercolors also offer a look at Hitler's own personal tastes, reflected in his obsession for paintings that were almost exact reproductions from life, with very little room for imagination or interpretation. With the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II coming up in 2005, this is sure to be a timely and important book.
