Art­works al­legedly cre­ated by the Nazi dic­ta­tor fail to sell at a Nurem­berg auc­tion

Five watercolour paint­ings at­trib­uted to the Fuhrer from his early days as a strug­gling artist failed to sell at the auc­tion in Nurem­berg, Ger­many, over fears they could be fakes

The paint­ings, which had start­ing prices of be­tween €19,000 and €45,000, re­ceived no bids, ac­cord­ing to a Sun­day re­port by The Nurem­berger Nachrichten news­pa­per

Three days be­fore Satur­day’s auc­tion, pros­e­cu­tors seized 63 other paint­ings at­trib­uted to Hitler from the auc­tion house to in­ves­ti­gate al­le­ga­tions they were fakes. Hitler is thought to have painted 2,000 pic­tures as a strug­gling artist in Vi­enna be­fore World War 1.
