In The Guardian, Jonathan Jones has been looking at the high prices fetched by paintings by Hitler - or rather, attributed to Hitler. The thing is, fakes abound, because nobody wants to be in a position to be an, er, Hitler connoisseur. So closet Nazi art collectors are spending vast sums, sometimes hundreds of thousands of pounds, on modern daubs that some enterprising fellow has signed 'Hitler'. As the saying goes, a Nazi fool and his money are easily parted.
