Hitler’s watercolors were auctioned at a regional sale room in Britain the other day. When the Chapman brothers bought 13 of the tyrant’s student works, they paid £115,000 privately. Here the same number of canvases achieved only £95,000, though the average price is an advance over the £118,000 paid for 21 of Hitler’s works in 2006:
A series of watercolours by Adolf Hitler were sold at a British auction house on Thursday for over 100,000 euros. The 13 paintings, most of them landscapes and found in a garage earlier this year by the seller, went for 95,589 pounds at auctioneers Mullock’s.
An apparent self-portrait showing a man with a side-parting sitting on a stone bridge, and signed with the initials A.H., sold for 10,000 pounds at the auction at Ludlow.
