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 was completed by his 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.

Offered for sale on this USMBOOKS web page is the full exhibition catalog for the Grosse Deutsche Kunstausstellung (Greater German Art Exhibition) held from July through December 1942 at the House of German Art in central München, Germany. It is a Third Edition with 198 pages.

The 5-7/8 x 8-1/4 inch heavily illustrated softcover book begins with a portrait of the Führer followed by a picture and multi-color floor plans of the Haus der Deutschen Kunst.

Then there are reproductions of the principal works of the exhibition (top Nazis, nudes, heroic sculptures, busts, landscapes, etc.) one to a page followed by pages of advertising for things like the SS Allach, Nymphenburg and Rosenthal porcelain, Mercedes-Benz, ALA, Heinrich Hoffmann, banks, beauty products, art galleries, art dealers and slpine ski resorts such as Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Kitzbühl.

SUPPLEMENT
Shown left is the very rare Ergänzungsteil zum Offiziellen Ausstellungskatalog der Großen Deutschen Kunstausstellung 1942 im Haus der Deutschen Kunst zu München, a supplement to the official exhibition catalog offered above.

This 5-7/8 x 8-1/4 inch, 32-page supplement contains all the art that was on display during the Grosse Deutsche Kunstausstellung of 1942, but also paintings, illustrations and sculptures that had not been on display due to lack of room in the House of German Art.

After the exhibition closed in December 1942, the art was sold and this publication lists the sold pieces, their replacements as well as unsold works.

This supplement was also published by F. Bruckmann KG of München but is much rarer than the actual Official Exhibition Catalog.  It is complete and in very nice used condition.
This rare supplement to the 1942 House of German Art Exhibition Catalog
