    BBC News - 'Hitler' painting fetches $161,000 at Nuremberg auction

    A watercolour thought to be painted by Adolf Hitler has sold at an auction in Germany for 130,000 euros (103,000; $161,000).

    The 1914 painting of Munich's city hall was put up for sale by two elderly sisters. Their grandfather had bought the painting in 1916.

    A private buyer from the Middle East, who wished to remain anonymous, bought the work, auction house Weidler said.

    Experts generally consider Hitler's artworks to be of poor quality.

    The auction was held in the central German town of Nuremberg.

    The auction house said bidders from four continents had expressed an interest in the work.

    There was always going to be a "Hitler" under the name "Stalin".

    Hi , how ironic, he was a good painter but was not accepted in the Arts Academy , he was a bad politician and ruled Europe.

    Pretty amazing that their grandfather purchased it in 1916 and it survived all these years remaining in the same family.

    I think he was a good artist.

    I've read that he would copy postcards , and sell them to tourists . Also that he couldn't paint faces very well and that is way he didn't get into school . There is an example of a self portrait of a young Hitler , thats not very good . He was much better at painting buildings .
