Hitler’s Art Up for Auction

art.hitlerEverybody knows Hitler was a failed artist and was rejected by the Art Academy of Vienna where he was desperately trying to gain entry. But whatever happened to his artistic days and why are they fetching such high prices under the hammer-  if in fact his artwork is not that inspirational but reeks of stale evil, and is simply really plain?

The works will be put up for sale by a Nuremberg auction house next month and are expected to fetch more than €15,000 (£13,000) apiece. Experts on Hitler’s paintings rate one of the watercolours, entitled White Church in the Wachau, as one of his chief works.- Hitler’s Art of Self-Delusion

The three paintings were sold for 42,000 euros at an auction house in Germany. They date from 1910 and 1911. Click here for a BBC video report on the watercolor paintings.

This is not the first time his art is up for auction. In April his paintings gathered a total of $120,000 at an art auction earlier this year as reported by CNN.
