It's well known that Hitler wanted to be a painter. But his painting were pretty drab and it is said that he lacked the talent.

My question is how did he view his botched career as an artist in the years 1924-1945? Did he admit that painting wasn't his strong suite or was it more like he thought he was an amazing painter but even better Chancellor? Did German art critics dare to say what they thought about the paintings?

    I’m voting to close this question because 'Hitler questions' are required strictly as per policy to show some research and all assertions like "it is said" require references. – LаngLаngС Aug 11 '20 at 13:19
  • I cannot support re-open without evidence of prior research, and clarification of existing issues (e.g. "it is said"). – MCW Jan 10 at 16:24
