John Heartfield’s photo montage of Adolf Hitler with his chest and belly full of gold from his financial supporters is one of the artist’s most famous collages.
Heartfield shows the führer performing a miracle of political alchemy. Hitler is able to convert financial contributions from war investors into nonsense into order to stir up the people.
This montage of Hitler was originally an AIZ Magazine Cover. It was a count, a member of the German nobility, who recognized the need for this montage to be reproduced as a poster and to be distributed throughout a Berlin under the shadow of the Nazi Party.
The John Heartfield Exhibition Shop offers a very high-quality reproduction of this searing portrait exposing Adolf Hitler. This image was typical of the type of art that made John Heartfield number five on the Gestapo’s Most Wanted List. Proudly display this collage reflecting the effect of financial backing on the nonsense spouted by today’s politicians. Profits from The Heartfield Exhibition Shop support The Official John Heartfield Exhibition and the development of an Online Museum For Progressive Political Art.
