With my uncle and godfather who was an art prof at Munich I was able to see a Hitler painting oil on panel of a yellow 19th century house at Munich. My uncle thought that he had some talent but would have needed academic instruction. Many years later I visited the Picasso Museum at Barcelona. Seeing Picasso's naturalistic paintings oil on panel it was clear to me that he might have starved had he not together with Henri Matisse and some artist friends found out that it was more profitable painting portraits with a surrealistic snub nose and a hanging eye or cubes (for example). Yet Picasso had one advantage Hitler did not have: he could deliver exact drawings. Thus Hitler was rejected by the Academy of Fine Arts at Vienna and ultimately became a political demagogue, while Picasso became a famous artist. I agree with Dr. Klein that this is a "staircase wit" of history.
