More Hitler Art For Auction

Twenty-one watercolours and sketches by Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler are to be auctioned in Britain after 70 years in a suitcase in a Belgian attic. The collection was apparently produced between 1916 and 1918 when the young Hitler was a corporal during the Great War. The works are to be auctioned at Jefferys in Lostwithiel, southwest England, and are expected to fetch up to £100 000 (€146 200, $177 300). They carry the hallmarks of Hitler's previously seen art work and some carry a distinctive signature. The smallest paintings, postcard size, are expected to fetch around £2000 each while the larger ones, eight inches by 10 inches (20 centimetres by 25 centimetres), could fetch £4000 each. Irish Art
