Manion's Holds Rare Hitler Art Auction Through April 20Online Event Features Five Pre-1920s Original Artworks, Including Three Watercolors and Two Oils (March 22, 2012)
KANSAS CITY, KS -- (Marketwire) -- 03/22/12 -- Manion's International Auction House announced today it is conducting an unusual online auction of rare original artworks by Adolf Hitler from now through April 20. The five works being offered all are dated prior to 1920, long before Hitler rose to power in post-WWI Germany.
"It's extraordinary to be able to offer this many pieces at one time, since Hitler's work has been scattered in private collections for decades," said Jody Tucker, Manion's president. "The provenance for each of these works is well documented.
"Although we have sold numerous oils, watercolors and sketches by Adolf Hitler in our online auctions in the past, this current set of offerings is different quite simply because it's rare to find these items in the U.S. and to be able to offer this many at one time. Most such sales are held in Europe," Tucker noted. "We have sold a dozen of his pieces in the last 10 years."
