The Haus der Deutschen Kunst (House of German Art) was built in a park-like setting just northeast of the Feldherrnhalle in downtown München (Munich) on the orders of Adolf Hitler, to replace the Crystal Palace Gallery which had been destroyed by fire in 1931. It was built under the direction of Professor Paul Ludwig Troost who died before it was finished. The building on Prinzregentenstraße was completed by his young widow, Gerdie Troost with the help of her associate professor Leonhard Gall in 1937. Each year the work of German artists from Germany and abroad was showcased at the House of German Art.
This offering is the official, full exhibition catalog for the Grosse Deutsche Kunstausstellung (Greater German Art Exhibition) that opened in July 1939 at the House of German Art in central München, Germany.
The 196-page, 5-7/8 x 8-1/4 inch heavily illustrated softcover book begins with a portrait of the Führer followed by a picture of and multi-color floor plans of the Haus der Deutschen Kunst. That is followed by a written overview of the building and a directory of each of the artists and the works being exhibited.

The next 80 pages are reproductions of the principal works of the exhibition (busts, nudes, heroic sculptures, landscapes, etc.) one to a page. There is a Franz Triebsch painting of Adolf Hitler, a Conrad Hommel painting of Hermann Göring in hunting attire, a Walter Einbeck painting of Reichsminister Rudolf Hess, a Leo Samberger painting of Gauleiter Adolf Wagner, a Fritz Erler painting of famous artist Josef Thorak, as well as art by Arno Breker, Wolf Willrich, Richard Klein, Sepp Hilz, Kurt Schmid-Ehmen, Julius Paul Junghanns, Eduard Thöny, Elk Eber, Josef Wackerle, Fritz Klimsch, Sepp Hilz, Paul Hermann, and many others.
