LONDON.- Mullock's Art Auctioneers sold a series of watercolors painted by Adolf Hitler for over 100,000 euros. The works were mostly landscapes and were found earlier this year in a garage. A work that appears to be a self-portrait that portrays a man using a side-parting and sitting on a stone bridge sold for 10,000 pounds. The work was signed with the initials A.H.

Richard Westwood-Brookes from Mullock's stated, "I am very pleased. I thought they would go for between five and six thousand. Unfortunately for the world, he was not accepted into the Vienna Academy, which was where he wanted to be. Of course, if he had been accepted, then we would have known him today as an artist and not as an evil tyrant." He had previously stated the works "are hardly Picasso".

From 1905 on, Hitler lived a bohemian life in Vienna on an orphan's pension and support from his mother. He was rejected twice by the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (1907–1908), citing "unfitness for painting", and was told his abilities lay instead in the field of architecture.
