Hitler watercolour paintings fail to sell at auction in Germany

AKIPRESS.COM - Five watercolours said to have been painted by Adolf Hitler have failed to sell at auction, Sky News reports.

The paintings, from the Nazi dictator's early days trying to establish himself as an artist, failed to sell in the German city of Nuremberg, possibly over fears they could be fake.

No bids were received on the paintings, which had starting prices of between €19,000 (£16,600) and €45,000 (£39,300), according to The Nuremberger Nachrichten newspaper.

The auction has been marred by accusations that the paintings are fakes.

Confidence in the auction was knocked when three days before Saturday's sale, prosecutors seized 63 other paintings attributed to Hitler from the auction house to investigate allegations they were fakes.
