Adolf Hitler Sale

Adolf Hitler - AH Sitting on a Bridge (1910) ?Iss dis da future Führer? The forlorn little figure sitting on a stone bridge over a river is marked with an X and the initials AH. The painting was sold for £10,000 yesterday at Ludlow Racecourse by Mullock's Art Auctioneers, one of 13 Adolf daubs which fetched a total of more than £95,000. They were supposedly found by a British soldier in 1945, sold to a collector and lay forgotten in the collector's garage until recently found. Infamy sells well. Earlier this year the Kray twins' daubs fetched £12,200. For a BBC video showing more of the young Führer's daubs, click the title link.
