Meditation on Anti-Nazi Love
Wilhelm Freddie
1936

Meditation on Anti-Nazi Love

At the centre of the picture, down by the edge, there is a little man the size of a tin soldier. It is the German chancellor, Adolf Hitler, in a characteristic pose. It is he who represents Nazism. A young couple can be seen on the right; they must be symbols of the love that is to provide opposition to Nazism. Most of the surface of the picture is filled with threatening clouds. Wilhelm Freddie employs a surrealist idiom which with its mixture of realistic reproduction and sinister distorted elements is influenced by the Spanish artist Salvador Dali.
