No takers at auction for Hitler’s paintings
Five watercolors attributed to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler from his early days as a struggling artist failed to sell at auction in the southern German city of Nuremberg, possibly over fears they could be fakes. The Nuremberger
Nachrichten newspaper reported Sunday that no bids were received on the paintings, which had starting prices of between $21,500 and $50,900. Three days before Saturday’s auction, prosecutors seized 63 other paintings attributed to Hitler from the auction house to investigate allegations they were fakes. In Berlin last month, prosecutors seized three other Hitler watercolors after a complaint questioning their authenticity.
