Paintings of Hitler Sold At German Auction $450000, Fourteen watercolor paintings and drawings presumed to be the work of a young Adolf Hitler were sold at auction in Germany for $440,000 (about 391,000 euros), the German news service Deutsche-Presse Agentur reported. The most expensive artwork, a watercolor signed by A. Hitler, of the Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria was sold to an unnamed buyer from China at the Weidler auction house in Nuremberg for over $113,000 (100,000 euros); a still life of carnations fetched over $82,000 (73,000 euros), according to Deutsche-Presse Agentur.
The art dates from 1904 to 1922 and includes a female nude, scenes of Vienna and Prague, and a portrait of a girl. The collection sold for substantially more than the $143,00 paid at a British auction in 2009 for a group of 13 paintings attributed to Hitler. Last year, the Weidler auction house sold a watercolor said to have been painted by Hitler to an unnamed buyer from the Middle East for around $161,000.
