One of the benefits of my work is that people frequently write me asking for information about something in their possession. One of the most interesting of those comes from a woman whose father, a B-17 pilot, found this remarkable painting while visiting the bombed-out remains of the beer hall in Munich where Hitler had held many of his early meetings. I have added it to the page of Nazi paintings of Hitler.
I am not familiar with the artist, one F. Thiele. I welcome information from anyone who know more about the artist or this painting.
