One of Franz von Stuck's best-known paintings The Wild Chase depicts Wotan (Odin, the Allfather of the gods) on horseback leading a procession of the dead. It was completed about 1889, the year of Hitler's birth, and it has acquired a kind of semi-legendary status as the face of Wotan in the painting greatly resembles Hitler's. It's said Adolf Hitler saw this painting at thirteen and he was fascinated by Wotan, and later had this painting taken from the museum and placed in a special gallery.

Franz von Stuck was Hitler's favorite painter from childhood on and the art of Franz von Stuck dominated Hitler's childhood imagery (according to Robert Waite's book The Psychopathic God: Adolph Hitler). Robert Waite wrote: "Hitler was said to have copied his mustache, hair style, and oratorical style from the painting."

Franz Stuck (1863–1928), ennobled as Franz von Stuck in 1906, was a German symbolist/Art Nouveau painter, sculptor, engraver, and architect. Stuck's subject matter was primarily drawn from mythology, inspired by the work of Arnold Böcklin. When the Nazis came to power Stuck was among the artists of the past cited as an example of proper Germanic values (http://www.artexpertswebsite.com/pag...ists/stuck.php).
