Two signed watercolours by Adolf Hitler are set to be sold later this month at auction in Nuremberg in southern Germany, scene of the Nazi war crimes trials, a local paper reported Thursday.
The two paintings -- entitled "Farmstead" and "Farm Buildings On The River" date from 1914 and would go under the hammer on April 25, the daily Nurnberger Abendzeitung said.
The bidding was due to start at 3,500 euros (4,600 dollars), according to a catalogue published by the Weidler auction house, which is putting the works up for sale.

Obama and Janet Gestapolitano can decorate their offices with them.
If they had only told him he had some talent...
they will go for far more than 4600
just look at gacy’s scribblinor or tommy silverstein...who can actually draw-paint
exactly.Would have haved saved us a lot of trouble if somebody would have just bought his paintings...
There is never a shortage of a**holes hungry for power and never a shortage of media hacks willing to promote them in order to promote themselves. So it was then, so it is today.
Sorry, I just think it’s sick.
Why would you want the work of a monster?
No self-esteem movement in 1914.
All money should go to the Jewish Organizations and the artwork destroyed.
I could spare $5,000 or so each, and I'd bid if I thought there was any chance of them going for that price. It would be worth $10k or even $20k to burn them and remove one more vestige of that phase in the battle between freedom and socialism. We'll have enough new artifacts from the current flirtation with the socialist threat that we don't need the older relics too.
Hitler, now there was a painter. He could paint an entire apartment in one afternoon, TWO COATS!
Compared to Andy Warhol and some others, he did have talent.
And to think... if the Vienna Academy of Art accepted him into their school, we may box to his art instead of recoil from his name. Very talented painter from what I can see.
That should’ve been “bow to his art.”
Seriously he was one ugly man, but I do like Willie.
As a FreeRepublic discussion involving Hitler's painting grows longer,

And if you have not seen it - I will never pass on an opportunity to plug this movie about them.
Watch the trailer to Sophie Scholl: The Final Days
He couldn’t paint people, he was pretty good at objects and landscapes.
LOL! "The Producers" was a funny movie. The Nazis were deadly serious, like cancer is deadly serious, but it is healthy to mock the bad guys once in a while.
