If he had become a full fledged good artist (he could draw buildings with some skill but his human forms were very pathetic) I do indeed believe that the war would never have started. I've read in more than one book that his burning hatred for the Jews stemmed in good part from the head of the art college he applied for. He turned Hitler down and that is what some think started him down the dark path. Even during the war most of his close friends were architects and artists. He even went so far as to keep most artists out of the armed forces even during the last hellish years when every man, and boy, was needed.
