“Adolf Hitler” – 1937

Click  on image for enlargement.

Often Hirshman not only found the forms to flesh out his figures, sometimes the function of those forms were the figures themselves. His 1937 pre-war caricature of Adolf Hitler, more than a year before the Fueher would annex Austria, was a short story in shapes, authored by the Jewish artist – Hitler’s beloved Nazi leather gloves, mimicking a sweep of his hair and a reference to the Gestapo; a house painter’s brush mocking Hitler’s lack of aptitude as a second-rate artist; a hot water bottle of hot-headedness; and a brown shirt shovel of shit scooped up on a dirty street of cobblestones.

    Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images
    on this blog loading? I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my
    end or if it’s the blog. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.

    A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I think that you should publish more on this subject,
    it may not be a taboo matter but generally people don’t speak about such subjects.
    To the next! All the best!!
