PAINTING depicts a fortress town and church
alongside a river. In German it is called
,,Landschaft mit Burg am Fluß" (Landscape
with a Fortress on a River). It is a watercolor on
paper measuring 240 mm x 380 mm and is signed and
dated in the lower right corner "A. Hitler 1913".
The size, the frame, paper, glass, signature and
artistic technique are fully consistent with other
works painted by Hitler while he lived in Vienna
from the autumn of 1907 through May 1913. It was
during this period that Hitler first came to know
the Priest in question.
We believe that this frame is completely
original to the painting, probably the frame the
painting was originally sold in by the dealer,
The reverse of the frame bears the label of
JOSEF WACHTL KUNST UND
RAHMENHANDLUNG (Art and Frame Shop) at No4
Plankengasse, in the center of Wien, without doubt
the framer. This frame is in very good condition
with the original glass and iron hanging ring but
is missing a small piece of the golden curl relief
in the lower right corner (the piece has been
missing for a very long time).
This is a spectacularly well-composed and
marvelously rendered medium size painting (about
11-1/4 x 16-1/2 inches overall frame size), typical
in every way of both Austria and the artistic style
of Adolf Hitler. The painting comes with two
Also included with the painting are color
photocopies of an interesting selection of the
ephemera owned by the Priest and purchased by the
Cowderys with this painting.
- a professional "Expertise" or Expert Opinion
from a well-known Viennese historian and art

Authenticity signed by both Ray and Josephine
Cowdery, with their signatures notarized.
