Adolf Hitler Watercolor Painting – Street Scene in Vienna. An authentic watercolor painting by the future dictator Adolf Hitler. The original painting shows “Vienna, Ratzenstadl from the back”. Hitler’s version shows the “Ratzenstadl in Vienna”. Hitler has drawn a typical street scene from Vienna, featuring the Ratzenstadl. The watercolor technique used on the houses and architecture is clearly the work of Adolf Hitler, as it can be seen in his other paintings as well. This painting is of particular interest, because it depicts the famous Ratzenstadl from behind, compared to other works by Hitler that focus on the building from the front. In certain aspects, this watercolor can be compared with the works 254-257 from our catalogue. The colors, style, choice of theme, and deepness of perspective are completely in accordance with Hitler’s general work. The painting has been signed in the lower right corner, in dark grey block letters reading A. Hitler. It is part of a private collection in Vienna, and has been approved by Hans O. A. Horvath, an expert for Hitler Studies. Judging by the style of drawing, signature, and expert opinion of Hans O. A. Horvath, the work is most definitely an authentic piece of art, and cannot be compared to the countless imitations that have been sold on the market in the last couple of years. A similar watercolor painting with the Karlskirche (St. Charles’ Church) in Vienna, which had also been approved by Hans O. A. Horvath, was sold in June 2015 for 40,000.00 euros at an auction in Nuremberg, Germany. Watercolor on cardboard, Dimensions (without frame): 22.7 x 16.1 cm, 8.94 x 6.34 inches.
