PAINT­INGS BY HITLER DIDN’T FIND BUY­ERS

The Asian Age - - Newsmakers -

Nurem­berg, Ger­many: Five paint­ings at­trib­uted to Adolf Hitler failed to find buy­ers at an auc­tion Satur­day held amid anger at the sale of Nazi mem­o­ra­bilia.

High start­ing prices of be­tween $ 21,000 and $ 50,000 and lin­ger­ing sus­pi­cions about the au­then­tic­ity of the art­works were thought to have scared off po­ten­tial buy­ers.

The Wei­dler auc­tion house did not com­ment on the rea­sons for the fail­ure but said the paint­ings could yet be sold at a later date.

Among the items that failed to sell were a moun­tain lake view and a paint­ing of a wicker arm­chair with a swastika sym­bol pre­sumed to have be­longed to the for­mer Nazi leader.
