The Nuremberg auction is annual and last year a 1914s watercolor signed A. Hitler fetched £93,000.

Weidler Auctioneers of Nuremberg appeared to be the organizers of the event. They stated that among the public there were private investors from different countries such as Brazil, the United Arab Emirates, France and Germany.
However, neither buyers nor sellers were identified.

Despite the fact that art critics consider Hitler as an ordinary painter, his works fetch a huge sum of money when they go under the hammer.

However, only those Hitler’s artworks can be sold legally, where aren’t any Nazi symbols displayed, according to the Germany’s Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung report.

They also added that these artworks are believed to be by Hitler. Besides, the most of them are signed A Hitler.

Although, there are numerous cautions that a huge number of fake Hitler’s paintings exist.

Talking about Hitler, it is known that he wanted to become an artist, but his application to the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts in the 1900s was rejected twice. So he decided to be the German military and succeeded in this, launching World War Two, which killed millions.
