Why on earth would anyone in his right mind spend £71,000 on this uninspiring painting of Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria? The usual: dead artist plus Big Name: Adolf Hitler. This daub should appreciate in value. It was sold to a Chinese buyer by Weidler Auctioneers of Nuremberg. In total, paintings by Hitler fetched £286,000. So much for taste in the art market (CLICK).
