Rediscovered Eva Braun portrait achieves $13,500 at Mullock's

The 1941 portrait of Eva Braun was recently rediscovered after being lost for decades

A rediscovered portrait of Hitler's mistress (and short-lived wife) Eva Braun by Hans Lehmkuhl made 8,000 ($13,296) at a March 18 sale at Mullock's Auctions, UK.

The painting was executed in 1941 and was later presented by Braun to Countess Antonia Isabelle Clementine von Westphalenzu Furstenberg - an aristocratic friend with close links to the Nazi party.
