Adolfs painting

Stephanie looks on in horror as the painting is knifed, in Shin Devilman

Adolf's Painting was a portrait of his first love, a young woman named Stephanie.


Crafted by the young artist Adolf Hitler, the painting was a passion project made in the image of his first lover Stephanie before she left town and married a young soldier.

Sometime after the demon Ardnas in the form of a old banker named Schultz, learns of the painting and decides to buy it. Adolf and his manager sell him the painting, reluctantly on Adolf's part, however after a mix up with the pay, Adolf returns to settle the matter only to see "Schultz" destroying the painting in front of Stephanie, who is killed shortly after when Ardnas reveals his true form as a flame coated serpent.
