Outstanding! Amazing colors and very thought provoking.

Hi Matthew. Absolutely a brilliant piece. For me first viewing your masterpiece yesterday without reading the description of the painting, I visualized the 'line" referred to a fashion "line" of garments hence him being dressed quite differently to his usual military garments. My point is - What if he could have been a famous fashion designer in the Art Deco Period if he had the opportunity instead of dabbling with some watercoulors of houses he had done? What if he had a proper education in the arts and had a Hitler brand that may be as successfull as Karl Lagerfeld or Hugo Boss? His watercolor attempts he painted was refused by Jewish owned galleries at the time before his political career may have spawned his hatred for them. Nicknamed the "Bohemian Corporal" by his generals during the second world war was the first title that came to mind when I saw your piece. I love the portrait of being almost unblemished and not harsh, the softness of your technique hides his age. The red background reflects the fascism of the time but currently fashionable. This picture paints ten thousand words. Five star accolades to you. Best regards, Christo
