Who Drew The Painting..an 11 Year Old Kid, Vincent Van Gogh, Or Hitler?
Vincent Van Gogh
Vincent Van Gogh is considered by many to be the greatest artist who ever lived. He was largely self taught as an artist, and his early works were heavily painted, mud colored attempts to represent the life of the poor. He soon discovered colors and used them liberally with dashed brushstrokes. In 1889 he voluntarily became a patient at the St. Remy asylum. It was there where he developed his agitated brushworks and the swirling, twisted shapes he is famous for. He died in 1890, having sold only one painting.
Adolf Hitler was also a self taught artist, and tyrannical dictator. He made no claims about his greatness as a painter, although his paintings were highly collectible during the Third Reich. Even today there are eager collectors of his work. Like most amateurs, he began by painting simple landscapes. Many say that his best work was his architectural sketches.
Stanislav Shpanin is 11 years old and lives in Azerbaijan. He is well known for his work in his home town of Baki, Azerbaijan. He has also been involved in many art festivals, some of which were held in Isreal, Russia, and France.
