If Hitler Had Been a Hippy How Happy we Would Be[1][2] is a 2008 artwork by Jake and Dinos Chapman which defaces orginal artworks by Adolf Hitler. He Chapmans previously did similar actions on work by Goya.

At the end of May 2008 the White Cube Gallery exhibited 20 authenticated watercolours and oils painted by Adolf Hitler, which the brothers have defaced with hippie motifs. Jake Chapman described most of the dictator's works as 'awful landscapes' which they had 'prettified'.
