Hitler’s First Self-Portrait Auctioned

PD*27748633This watercolor painting is among 13 works by the Nazi dictator, created back in 1910 when he was just 21. The small portrait has no nose or mouth, but the side parting hairstyle is unmistakable and experts are sure it is him because of the markings on the piece. Hitler is shown sat on an old stone bridge, with a cross and the initials AH painted above him. All of the pictures had been kept under lock and key in storage since their liberation during the Second World War. But the paintings, which were dated between 1908 and 1912, have now been brought out for the public to see before they go under the hammer in April.
