(After the Mumbai terror attacks perhaps some light relief is needed.)
A painting by Hitler from the first world war failed to meet its reserve price of Â£2,800 at auction. The seller had been given the painting two years ago by her son as a birthday gift, who paid Â£10,500 for it, but she hated it so much that she was happy to sell it at a loss.
Who buys their mother a painting by Hitler? I can just imagine the scene now:
Proud son: “Mum, I got you a painting by that artist you like.”
Mother: “Actually, I said that I didn’t like Hitler.”
