A pair of watercolors signed "Adolf Hitler" and depicting farm scenes fetched a combined total of €32,000 ($42,000) at an auction in Germany on Saturday, an auction house official said. Kathrin Weidler, a manager at the Weidler Auction House in Nuremberg, declined to identify the new owner of the two paintings - "Farmstead," which went for €18,000, and "Farm Buildings on the River," which sold for €14,000. The minimum bidding price for each painting was €3,500. The two watercolors, listed in the catalog as "signed and dated 1914," did not show evidence of a "good painting style," Weidler said.
