An auction of Adolf Hitler’s work took place in Nuremburg (South East Germany) on Saturday. Watercolours and drawings by Hitler made a total of 391,000 euros. A Chinese collector paid 100,000 euros for a watercolour of Neuschwanstein castle. Another piece sold for 73,000. The artworks by the Nazi dictator, who is generally thought of as a failed artist, were done between 1904 and 1922. The fourteen pieces on offer were all sold. They included representations of Vienna and Prague. The buyers were from China, the United Arab Emirates, France, Brazil, and Germany.
It is not rare to find work by Hitler at auctions. In November, one of his watercolours sold for 130,000 euros. It was auctioned by the same house, Weidler.
There are also numerous fakes in circulation.
