Adolf Hitler 1912 watercolor still life painting to be auctioned by Nate D. Sanders Auctions

LOS ANGELES, CA.- A 1912 still life of flowers in a pitcher, by Adolf Hitler, will be auctioned by Nate D. Sanders on March 26. Interested bidders may participate in the auction online.

The 13.5'' x 10.75'' watercolor shows a blue ceramic pitcher holding flowers resembling zinnias and dahlias. The flowers are bright orange, red and soft pink, all with yellow centers. The watercolor is considered unusual as the bulk of Hitler’s work focused on landscapes and architecture. The watercolor was painted when Hitler was 24 or 25 years old.

Hitler began painting in 1908 as an impoverished 18-year old who had moved from Linz to Vienna with dreams of becoming an artist. Although the Vienna Academy of Art twice rejected him, Hitler continued to paint to try to support himself. Ironically, the Jewish art dealer Samuel Morgenstern believed in Hitler’s talent and sold several Hitler paintings to wealthy Viennese Jewish clients beginning in 1911. Hitler was unable to make a successful living as a painter and moved to Munich in 1913.

Despite being an early supporter of Hitler, the Nazis seized Morgenstern’s gallery and he was deported to the Lodz Ghetto, where he died in 1943.

The 1912 floral still life is signed “A Hitler” at the bottom right and has Samuel Morgenstern’s stamp on the back. The last Hitler painting to sell at auction was an architectural watercolor of Munich Hall, which sold in 2014 for $161,000.

Bidding for the Hitler watercolor begins at $30,000.
