Mocathalon 2014, Team Pulp Briction, Category: Reverse a Historical Moment. Adolf Hitler (1886-1968) was an Austrian born painter and architectural designer. He was the founder and central figure of Structuralism, an artistic style characterized by dramatic contrasts between light and shadow. Hitler was twice rejected by the Academy of fine arts, with the examiner suggesting he pursue architecture the second time. Nevertheless, Hitler continued to paint. His postcards of famous Austrian buildings were moderately popular among tourists. In 1916, when he was drafted into the German army, Hitler took along his easel and brushes. Paint was scarce on the front, so he was often reduced to painting in shades of gray with watercolors made from charcoal and ash.
About this creation
MOCathalon 2014 group


Post-war, Hitler moved to Paris to escape the poverty faced by Germany. He continued to paint in his grayscale stlye, but with an occasional bright color. He gained some notoriety due to his skill at painting light and shadow, and for being a hated German. He is here pictured visiting Claude Monet at his home garden in Giverny. Monet later claimed that his visit with Hitler gave him cancer. He died in 1926.


Throughout the late 20's and early 30's, Hitler was often commissioned to paint renderings of architectural plans to present the client with a picture of what the finished building would look like. His keen eye and attention to detail eventually landed him a job as a facade designer. His work was at once timeless and art-deco. Though he is now credited as the central figure of structuralism, he often accused his followers of riding his coat-tails, or being imposters. He fell in love -the only time in his life- with Russian born artist Zinaida Serebriakova. She spurned his advances, publicly rejecting and humiliating him at the dedication of a Paris police station.


Hitler continued to design various buildings until the German Socialist(GAZI) invasion of 1941. He then fled to New York to escape Josef Albers' death camps.


Art Deco and Structuralism waned in the war and post war years, but Hitler stubbornly refused to learn a new style. He was publicly dismissive of the new Pop Art phenomenon, calling it "deparaved" and "degenerate". As the movement gained in popularity, Hitler became more and more antagonistic. Finally, on June 3, 1968, a now elderly Hitler entered "The factory", Andy, Warhol's studio, and shot him. Warhol survived his wounds, but Hitlerdid not. He suffered a massive heart attack fleeing police and died on June 4 of that year.

Builder's Notes: I kept this as true to actual reality as possible.
1. Hitler was rejected by the Academy of fine arts Vienna twice, and it was suggested that he go into architecture.
2. during WWI Hitler took his painting supplies to the front, mostly watercolors.
3. The build of Hitler and Monet on a bridge was badly copied from a photo on wikipedia.
4. Monet died of cancer in 1926.
5. Zinaida Serebriakova was a Russian born artist who lived in Paris during the 1920s and 30s.
6. Art Deco is an actual thing.
7. Josef Albers was a German structuralist painter. He fled Germany in 1933.
8. Hitler did not approve of structuralism or any other modern or post-modern art. It was considered "depraved" and "degenerate".
9. Pop art is an actual thing.
10. Andy Warhol was shot on June 3, 1968 and survived his wounds.

Quoting Kevin Yoo Hmm, very interesting. Now that I think about it, if Hitler never led the Nazi party into WW II, it would have a huge impact (some negative) on human history. The UN would possibly never be formed, as it was created in response to the damage WW II caused. The Soviet Union would not have allied with the UK and US, possibly bringing in tensions. If a second World War were to become in this timeline, it would be the UK and US against the Soviets, possibly creating even more damage than that of the war of Hitler, as the two warring sides in the alternate timeline had a bunch of nuclear weapons.
With the political and economic conditions in Germany between the world wars, the situation was perfect for the rise of a tyrant. Hitler was a man of the times, to include the hardline German nationalism of the late 1890s/early 1900s. Though I agree that if no tyrant emerged, the US/Soviet conflict would have been far more destructive.

The builds were in the three range but your "strange" twist on history earned ya another point. Score of 4. ~Chris.
