HITLERS DRAWINGS OF MüNCHEN
Hitler made a number of drawings of Munich when he just came from Vienna. You can see some of these drawings on this page, together with some related addresses.
Because I’m not an expert on the subject of art, I can’t say much about the authenticity of the drawings. There are a lot of paintings on the internet that are supposed to have been made by Hitler. Some of them are real, some of them have been redone by another artist (for instance some of the coloured pictures of the WW1-period) and some are not made by Hitler at all. If you question the authenticity of the drawings below, please let me know by sending an e-mail.
