In an alternate universe Hitler could have been one of the greatest artist in history.
He also liked animals. He could have been a great man if he only had gotten in the art school.

He couldn't have been, he already was.
Hitler single-handedly ended the economic crisis in Germany, built a network of roads that still spans Germany, literally ended unemployment on the spot, the list goes on.

"single-handedly"

No, you're a moron, he hired other people to fix the economy for him, I can't remember the name of his finance minister but he was the guy who fixed the German economy, pay more attention in school.

The ******** put the Luftwaffe Commander in charge of the economy because the other guy didnt want to spend all the country's money on military spending. Hitler had no plans whatsoever for the future of Germany past his rule.

It's not bad per-say, but it also isn't all that good, they very clearly represent what they're supposed to, but they have no life to them at all. The apartment looks like it's straight out of an ad brochure, it's stagnant, empty, like it's fake. Dishes strewn about, laundry on a clothes rack, a rug that is slightly askew, maybe even a bit of dirt or mud would make it seem more like somebody lives there. The living room/common area/whatever the **** suffers the same, it's too... orderly, no books, no magazines, wall paintings, it looks like the furniture has been sitting there for centuries, collecting a fine dust and an eery empty feel. The seagulls outside the house are a nice touch, making it feel more like a still life than a stagnant diagram. The driveway's perspective is pretty wonkey though, and having never been good a depth or perspective I cannot place why. The people, on the otherhand, look like mannequins, empty shells placed randomly in an attempt to give the illusion of life and activity, ultimately giving the piece the same lifeless feel as the other two.

I Suppose ol' Hitler never handled life well, how it should look and what a peaceful existence looks like. Also reflective of the who Holocaust thing, the guy was a pretty big dickhead.

Aaaaand that is me giving a critique of Hitler's artwork, I will be collecting my check and signing out of the Internet, a life fulfillment done.

The driveway looks to me, more like it's supposed to got to a house with a courtyard, looking at the picture, I at first glace, though it had one, but looking at it for longer showed it didn't, so now looking at it, the drivway looks far to round.

But that's just me, I'm just not used to big driveway if there isn't a courtyard.

Now I believe that this art shows how Hitler viewed the world, or even how he wanted the world to be. Dry, quiet, orderly and it could be argued that at that time, in rural Austria, life was that way.
It could even be seen as a cry for help, with Hitler's grandiose nature, such a boring place would be terrible.
I personally like the last piece, and I don't see your perspective problems. The 'empty shells' look more like sacks of food/produce that were commonplace at the time.
So basically, I feel that your comments on everything looking too 'stagnant, empty, fake' are simply you missing the point, in that it is supposed to look stagnant and empty, and I'd even go so far as to say that it could be commentary on the state of the German aristocracy, which Hitler didn't exactly appreciate.

maybe its empty and stagnant because thats how he felt. most if not all artists pour their inner most feelings into their art. that is why there is no art that is truly good or bad. for the only person that can interpret it for what it truly is is the artist them self

just think of this though, he wasn't accepted into a school. meaning if he had been, I'm sure his skill would have become more refined.

Eh, the reason he didn't get into the school isn't because of the motive being bad, there's no way you can judge any artform by it's motive, except for possibly decorative art.
The reason why he didn't get in is cus it is, indeed, bad per-say (I aint saying it's ****, it's clearly better than anything I could make, but it's not great either). He had a lot of issues with making straight lines, and when he's trying to be a naturalist that is a big issue, ESPECILLY when it comes to buildings, if you look closely a lot of it is somewhat uneven. There was some other **** aswell about his technique specificly but I can't think off it now.

But another important part, and the main reason why he'd never be big regardless, is that he was a naturalist in a world where cubism, impressionism and other more abstract art forms where populair. In other words the only way he could've been succsessfull with what he did was if he aimed for a decorative future, which again he just weren't good enough for.

What is the fine line between "proper art" and "a unique art" when it comes to him and straight lines? What if he took it in a personal direction, he's bad at straight, so never draw anything with a straight line. Some artists never draw faces, some without eyebrows, more with just sponge splotches.

He could always have gone for an abstract path, but he didn't, which is kinda why he never were that succsesfull.
But most "unique" artists are extremly good naturalists too. Like Picasso, he was known for being extremly talanted withing naturalism, he just simply decided to take another path.

But yes, I'd love to live in the dimention where Hitler is a world famous dead kubistic artist.

Well, technically, he wasn't a really bad person. He fixed Germany from scraps and **** filled with beer and bratwurst, set the army straight, and (not personally) made a lot of inventions and corporations happen, like Volkswagen for an example.

Then he wanted to expand Germany and made sure that they were still relevant to the world. After that, he could've stopped, but he didn't, and that's where he ****** up. He was even Man of the Year in Times magazine year 1939 I think.

Holocaust started before '39. And Hitler wasnt trying to make sure that the German people were still relevant, he was out for revenge. He wanted Lebensraum, living space forhis "master race" or Aryan Germans. He stopped at nothing trying to achievve this goal. Sure, his actions before he started in '39 were mostly positive towards Gemany, but you cant focus on only the things he did before 1939 and say "Oh, he wasn't that bad." Say yopu have to factor in everything he did, otherwise your analysis is flawed. he was a great leader, but an evil, evil man.

EVEN TECHNICALLY, YOU'RE STILL WRONG. TECHNICALLY, HE REBUILT GERMANY. TECHNICALLY, HE KILLED 11 MILLION PEOPLE BECAUSE DIDNT LIKE THEM. TECHNICALLY, YOU'RE ONLY LOOKING AT HOW HE IMPROVED LIVES FOR A CERTAIN GROUP OF PEOPLE, NOT AT HOW HE INFLUENCED EVERYONE'S LIVES IN GERMANY.

"and that's where he ****** up." That's all I'm leaving you with as for the actual Hitler thingy.

Also, did I ever say he was a saint or something? You're quoting me on words I neither intended, nor spoke or wrote. I said technically because he technically was, there's always two sides of a coin. He could've lead Germany to a golden age, but then he ****** up. I'm out.
