German auction house putting Hitler watercolour on marketBreaking News
Auctioneer Kathrin Weidler said the painting entitled ‘Standesamt und Altes Rathaus Muenchen’ (Civil Registry Office and Old Town Hall of Munich) is one of about 2,000 works Hitler painted from about 1905 to 1920 as a struggling young artist.
Asked about criticism that it is tasteless to auction the Nazi dictator’s works, generally considered to be of limited artistic merit, she said complaints should be addressed to the sellers — an unidentified pair of German sisters in their 70s.
