Adolf Hitler watercolour painting sets new auction record

A watercolour painting by Adolf Hitler was among the highlights at Weidler Auction House in Nuremburg, Germany on November 22.

The work realised $161,000 - an increase of 5,043% on a minimum bid of $3,130 and a new record for a painting by the dictator.

Hitler was rejected by the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts in 1907 and 1908


It's thought to date to 1914-1915, while Hitler was fighting on the Western Front, and depicts Munich town hall in his distinctive style.  

Hitler's work often sells for major sums at auction due largely to his infamy. A seascape made $53,000 in a 2012 auction in Slovakia.
