Did they find The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies by Van Klomp or the Cracked Pot with the Big Daisies by Van Gogh?

What's that painting called? "Reclining Lady with Underboob"?

drongozone: Hitler? Godwin? WHO?


No evidence exist that these were "Stolen for Jewish Families". Did I read that right? So why is the article written this way? Where is the proof that 'Hitler" or any Nazi connection exists. The fact that this guys father was the "dealer" does not make him guilty. Maybe his father actually purchased the pieces and kept them for himself. yes, I am Naïve. Of course all of it could be true, but the reality is without proof, who owns them now? If the Austrian Govt just takes them, they are no better. These are probably worth millions. Maybe the Movie Studio planted them for promotions material for its flick.

A lot of people like art.

Hitler liked blondes with big tits...

On a tangent, saw Monuments Men yesterday; it was OK, but should've been better with all that star power in the cast.

I thought Picasso was too "modern" and "corrupt" for Hitler's tastes.

So did you copypasta from the article's comments, or did you just post the exact same thing in two places?

Magic words have been spoken, and there are no take-backs now, so the only thing this guy will hear is

It's interesting that one of the greatest mass murders of the 20th century was a failed artist.

Yeah, the Austrians let some Hollywood promotion team into Gurlitt's house where they planted millions of dollars worth of long lost works of art as a movie promotion scheme. That's the ticket.

Have some more coffee, Gunny.

So that new movie must be out or just about to be released.

Say what you will about Nazis, they were apparently the masters of art preservation. Had all of this art been left in the hands of the owners it probably would have been destroyed in the bombings of WWII.
 
2014-02-12 10:17:48 AM  
I have always read and been told that the Nazis hated abstract art.

That came out way more pro-nazi than I intended.

Cue "the autobahn", "synthetic rubber" and "the SS sure had nice uniforms" as other things the Nazis did well.

/say what you will.

In all fairness, they didn't kill ALL the Jews.

Ah, trolling then.

Let's see.  The guy's father was the personal art dealer for one of the top Nazis who also had a reputation for looting a massive amount of art.  Yeah, sure his collection is legit.

Like Charlie Manson, I see Uncle A more as more of a vehement murder advocate.  To murder seems to mean to kill someone through a direct and intentional mechanism.  This is not meant to ameliorate anyone's feeling toward the guy.  He was a creep, a lout, a paper-hanger, a moody coke-addict and a blood-soaked fiend and hypocrite.  He was creepy to those he identified with as well as those he claimed to hate.  If Hitler is a murderer, however, where does that put, say, Curtis LeMay?

I copy pasted the first and longest comment.  If that is trolling, then yes, I was trolling.

Listen very carefully, for I shall say this only once: no they did not.
