Military art experts turned their backs on a bid to sell a painting by Adolf Hitler yesterday. The 14 by 10 inch watercolour failed to sell at the asking price of pounds 5,000, and even at the knock-down price of pounds 2,600.

Colin Such, director of auctioneers, Warwick and Warwick, said he was not surprised the painting went unsold. He said: "The price was perhaps a bit too high."

The painting, of a canal waterfront with a tower spire in the background, has the initials "AH" scrawled in the left-hand corner.
