The Haus der Deutschen Kunst (House of German Art) in central München (Munich) was built on the orders of Adolf Hitler to replace the Crystal Palace Gallery which had been destroyed by fire. It was built under the direction of Professor Paul Ludwig Troost who died before it was finished. It was completed by his widow Gerdie Troost. Each year from 1937 onward paintings and sculpture of German artists from Germany and abroad were showcased at the House of German Art in summer and examples of architecture and artistic handwork were exhibited each winter.
Some of the artists with works exhibited in the 1938 show were Paul Ludwig Troost, Leonhard Gall, Albert Speer, Richard Klein, Woldemar Brinkmann, Kleemann, Junghanns, etc.
