"In March 1945, with the Red Army poised outside the gates of Berlin, he had the plans for the redevelopment of Linz
brought in to him in the bunker beneath the Reich Chancellery building and - so it is reported - stood gazing at them,
lost in reverie."

"Everything I own - to the extent that it is of value at all - belongs to the Party. Should the Party cease to exist, it
belongs to the state. Should the state be destroyed, then no further decision is required on my part.
I have never used my paintings in the collection acquired over the course of time for private purposes; rather I have
always and exclusively collected them for the institution of a gallery in my home city of Linz a.d. Donau."
