World War II Painters
Dwight D. Eisenhower
I was looking at some of Jack Kevorkian’s paintings and Adolf Hitler’s life as a failed artist came into my mind. The intensity of pain revealed through Kevorkian’s paintings are an extreme contrast to the serene scenes Hitler often copied from tourist’s postcards. Suffering can be seen in both the work and their context. Upon doing some googling to find anything discussing the two painter’s works I came across a NYT article that speaks of a benefit exhibition curated by Kevorkian that never came into fruition. The group show would have included works from Winston Churchill, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Adolf Hitler with proceeds going to the Michigan Holocaust Memorial.
