Hitler attempted to become a painter as a young man

Prior to his ascension through the ranks of the Nazi party, Hitler had attempted to enter the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts, but was rejected. During this time, he lived on the streets.

There is a strong market for paintings by the dictator - primarily due to his infamy. In 2012, a seascape sold for $53,000 in a Slovakian auction.

More recently, a watercolour made close to $8,000 at Mullocks.
