Fear of fakes keeps buy­ers off Hitler art­work at auc­tion

DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

Nurem­berg: Five wa­ter­colours, at­trib­uted to Nazi dic­ta­tor Adolf Hitler from his early days as a strug­gling artist, have failed to sell at an auc­tion in the south­ern Ger­man city of Nurem­berg, pos­si­bly over fears they could be fakes. A lo­cal news­pa­per re­ported Sun­day that no bids were re­ceived on the paint­ings, which had start­ing prices of be­tween 19,000 eu­ros (over Rs 15 lakh) and 45,000 eu­ros (Rs 36 lakh). Ear­lier this week, pros­e­cu­tors seized 63 other paint­ings at­trib­uted to Hitler from the auc­tion house to in­ves­ti­gate their au­then­tic­ity.
