​In 1937 the Nazi regime held two exhibitions in
Munich: one to stigmatize “degenerate art,” and one,
personally curated by Hitler, to glorify “classic art.”
Narrated by Toni Servillo (star of Oscar® winner The
Great Beauty), Hitler vs Picasso is an incredible journey
through five exhibitions, displaying masterpieces by
Botticelli, Klee, Matisse, Monet, Chagall, Renoir, and
Gauguin. Linked to each exhibition are moving stories
of those who witnessed the systematic destruction and
looting of the day – from the Bernheimer family, who
were forced to barter their freedom, to “Hitler’s
dealer,” Cornelius Gurlitt, known to have hidden away
some of the most priceless art treasures of the century.
Revealing the Nazi obsession with art, Hitler vs Picasso
offers viewers a rare look at condemned works that
have finally come to light.
