Adolf Hitler presents a picture of a famous painter to Hermann Goering

Adolf Hitler, Hermann Goering

Adolf Hitler presents to the leader of the Luftwaffe Hermann Goering a painting by Hans Makart “Lady with a Falcon” (drawn in 1880).
Both Adolf Hitler and Hermann Goering were passionate collectors of works of art: by 1945 Hitler’s collection numbered 6,755 paintings, and Goering’s collection – 1375. The pictures were acquired by illegal methods in countries occupied by Germany. Disputes over the legal status of some of the paintings from the former collections of leaders of Nazi Germany are still going on.
