Hitler’s Painting Expected to Fetch £40,000 at Auction

Collectors of macabre pieces of history and mediocre art will have the chance to buy one of 14 works created by a young Adolf Hitler from 1904 to 1922. Some of the artwork by the Nazi leader, suchy as the 100-year-old watercolour of Munich’s old city hall is expected to fetch at least £40,000 ($63,000) at auction this weekend.

Nuremberg’s Weidler auction house says the painting is one of some 2,000 painted by Adolf Hitler and is thought to be from about 1914, when he was struggling to make a living as an artist.
This 28×22 cm (11×8.5 inch) scene, unimaginatively called “The Old City Hall,” also includes the original bill of sale and a signed letter from Hitler’s adjutant, Albert Bormann, brother of Hitler’s private secretary Martin Bormann. It is being sold by a pair of elderly sisters, whose grandfather purchased the painting in 1916.
