Hitler’s Painting Auctioned in Nuremberg, Where He Did his Best Work

Hitler-painting-up-for-auction-in-Germany

The German Weidler auction house announced that a painting by one Adolf Hitler is expected to sell in late November, UPI reported.

This Hitler, we’re told,  produced hundreds of works and sold his paintings and postcards to pay the rent in Vienna, from 1908 to 1913. He was not successful, which is a pity, because, as it turned out later, he was amazingly successful in other areas.

A number of Hitler’s paintings were recovered after World War II and have sold at auction for tens of thousands of dollars. Others were seized by the U.S. Army and are still held by the U.S. government.

The Weidler auction house said the painting, titled “The Old Town Hall, ” was created in 1914 or 1915. It shows a registrar’s office in Munich.

The watercolor is being sold at the Nuremberg auction house by two sisters whose grandfather bought it from a gallery in 1916.

The auction includes the original bill of sale as well as a certificate of authenticity signed by Albert Bormann, brother of Martin Bormann, who eventually became Hitler’s chief of staff.

You work with people you know.

The Weidler auction house has already sold five paintings signed by “A. Hitler, ” most recently picking up $40, 000 for one painting in January 2012.

The starting price for “The Old Town Hall” will be $3, 130 when it goes up for auction Nov. 22.

The sisters plan to donate 10 percent of their proceeds to a charity for disabled children.

All’s well that ends well.
