MEDUSA (1892), by FRANZ VON STUCK, was one of Adolf Hitler's favorite paintings and Von Stuck one of his favorite painters from childhood. It is said that when he first saw Stuck's MEDUSA (which bore an uncanny resemblance to Klara Hitler) he exclaimed: "My God, that's my mother!" You decide. But spooky to think of Hitler's mother being the snake-headed Medusa. lol But quite befitting, nonetheless.
