Hitler painting expected to fetch £40k at auction
nuremberg: A 100-year-old watercolour of Munich's old city hall is expected to fetch at least €50,000 (£40,000) at auction this weekend, not so much for its artistic value as for the signature in the bottom left corner: 'A. Hitler'.
Nuremberg's Weidler auction house said the painting is one of some 2,000 painted by Adolf Hitler and is thought to be from about 1914, when he was a struggling artist, almost two decades before rising to power as the Nazi dictator.
It is being sold by two elderly sisters, whose grandfather purchased the painting in 1916.
