Artworks allegedly by Adolf Hitler fail to promote at Nuremberg public sale | World information
Excessive beginning costs of between €19,000 and €45,000 ($21,000 and $50,000), and lingering suspicions concerning the authenticity of the artworks had been thought to have scared off potential patrons at Saturday’s public sale in Nuremberg.
The Weidler public sale home didn’t touch upon the explanations for the failure however mentioned the work might but be bought at a later date.
Nuremberg’s mayor, Ulrich Maly, had earlier condemned the sale as being “in bad taste”.
Among the many objects that didn’t promote had been a mountain lake view and a portray of a wicker armchair with a swastika image presumed to have belonged to the late Nazi dictator.
The Weidler public sale home held the “special sale” in Nuremberg, the town through which Nazi struggle criminals had been tried in 1945.
