An article in the NY Times, Based on Life or Fantasy, a Picture Goes to Auction, by Dylan Loeb McClain, is about an etching depicting Hitler, with the White pieces, and Lenin playing Black, will be sold at auction. The etching is signed by Emma Lowenstramm, the artist, and that on the back are “pencil markings which have been identified as being the signatures of Hitler and Lenin.” It is estimated to bring about $63,000 to $95,000.
