An "artist" and a "house painter"
The Austrian government and the media believe that Nitsch can uplift one's spirit by his "touching creations" - naked girls, resting in the bloody guts of butchered sows. On the other hand an individual will go to prison for up to 15 years in Austria if he possesses and shows or exhibits a piece of an Adolf Hitler painting.

Adolf Hitler, the "house painter"
Hermann Nitsch, the "artist"
Adolf Hitler is called the Austrian "house painter", not painter or artist. Hermann Nitsch on the other hand is praised as being one of the greatest Austrian artists ever lived. On August 10, 1998 he concluded one of his most successful open air exhibitions of "modern art", lasting for one week.
Nitsch was cheered by the Austrian Chancellor, Ministers and other Government officials. All politically correct Parties in Austria were in praise of the "unique artwork" of Hermann Nitsch. This genius is sponsored with millions of Euros by the Austrian government in order to secure the on-going production of his works. The Austrian government and the media believe that Nitsch can uplift one's spirit by his "touching creations" - naked girls, resting in the bloody guts of butchered sows. On the other hand an individual will go to prison for up to 15 years in Austria if he possesses and shows or exhibits a piece of an Adolf Hitler painting.
This is an example of our democratic right of freedom of artistic expression and ideas. We are thankful that we can enjoy the outstanding works of Nitsch and are spared the horrors of Adolf Hitler's ugly scribbles. Thank God, democracy selects what we are allowed to see and what we are allowed to read and say.
Who's works do you want your children to see? Nitsch's "arts" or Hitlers "ugly scribbles"?
Watercolor by Hitler to be shown in Tokyo

TOKYO ? A watercolor by Nazi leader Adolf Hitler will be put on display Saturday at Theatre Times Square in Shibuya Ward to coincide with the screening of a film about his artistic ambitions, organizers said Tuesday. Toshiba Entertainment Inc, distributor of the film "Max," a joint Hungarian, Canadian and British production, said it is taboo in Europe to display art by Hitler, but the piece is an invaluable material with which people can have a "level-headed view of the human side of Hitler."
