Pere Sampol, the deputy chief minister of the Balearics and its minister of commerce, yesterday opened the seventh antiques and art fair, in which 86 firms are taking part. The fair, at the precinct in the Poligono de Levante, will be open until March 25. One of the biggest attractions is the portrait Woman in Blue, painted by Adolf Hitler in his youth. The owner says that it is up for sale, but no price has been set. A spokesman did say, however, that it would be “high.” The portrait was painted in the Twenties and belonged to the collection of Baron Henssel. On his death, his collection went to his widow Monica Carpenter. It is now owned by Manolo Tero, an art dealer from Malaga, who purchased it in 1995. It was stolen but he recovered it in 1998.
