Hitler versus Picasso and the Others – The Nazi Obsession for Art

Italy, France, Germany 2018 | 94 minutes | Italian | Hebrew, English subtitles

In 1937 the Nazi regime held two exhibitions in Munich: one to stigmatize “degenerate art,” and one to glorify “classic art.” Narrated by Toni Servillo (The Great Beauty), Hitler Versus Picasso is a journey through exhibitions by Botticelli, Klee, Matisse, Monet, Chagall, Renoir, and Gauguin. Linked to each exhibition are witness accounts of the destruction and looting – from the Bernheimer family, who were forced to barter their freedom, to “Hitler’s dealer,” known to have hidden the most priceless art treasures of the century. A rare look at condemned works that have finally come to light.
