Two watercolours attributed to Adolf Hitler and dated 1914 have been sold at auction to a private collector for €32,000, the Weidler auction house said Saturday.

Depicting farms and landscapes, with no political symbolism, the two paintings - created the year Hitler turned 25, and 20 years before he became the leader of Germany - each had a starting price of €3,500.

Last Thursday, 13 watercolours by Hitler - most of them landscapes found in a garage earlier this year by the seller - went for 95,589 pounds (€107,000) at auction in Britain.

They included an apparent self-portrait showing a man with a side-parting sitting on a stone bridge, signed with the initials A.H.

In 2006, 21 of Hitler's works were sold in Britain for 118,000 pounds, while during the same year Weidler - located in the Bavarian city of Nuremberg - sold another piece from the Nazi dictator's youth for €11,000.
